Stunning scenery

Only 4 miles from the historic city of Stirling, yet hidden away in a truly magnificent and peaceful rural scenery means a perfect location for year-round holidays. Osprey Hideaways overlooks the owners’ own 120-acre loch where ospreys can be seen feeding most days in season. 300ft high cliffs frame the far side of the water, making the views genuinely stunning. All the cottages are furnished to a very high boutique standard and provide excellent accommodation for couples or family groups. A welcome pack is provided including a bottle of bubbly so that you can relax as soon as you arrive. There is also lovely linen, towels, bathrobes - and even slippers! To top this off is the honesty room where you can borrow books, a huge selection of DVDs, games, toys and visitor information. The owners live on site and are there to help as much (or as little!) as you want.

Each cottage has been named after birds that are regularly seen flying overhead, and are perfectly located to enjoy the best of both worlds at any time of the year - the peace of the countryside and the amenities and activities of the city. As well as being only 4 miles from Stirling city centre, it’s only 5 miles to the motorway junction for surprisingly quick journey times to Edinburgh, Perth and Glasgow and all their facilities. Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park is 20 miles away and the mountains to the north or the beautiful sea lochs to the west are all within a 2 hour drive. There are numerous golf courses locally and even the Gleneagles course is only 35 minutes’ away. For walks the choice is endless and one of the best cliff-top walks in central Scotland starts right at the cottages! Stirling is a vibrant but compact university city offering wonderful attractions, including an incredible castle, the amazing Wallace Monument, the historic Church of the Holy Rude and even ghost tours. There are restaurants to suit all tastes, swimming pools, sport centres, multiplex cinema, theatre, museum, pubs and shops. The best bit is that Stirling is very much a year round destination. The perfect place for the perfect holiday! Shops, pubs and restaurants 4 miles.

    This is such a beautiful cottage and location. Everything you need is thought of, even slippers, robes and a welcome pack. George and Morag are so lovely and welcoming. Morag was so kind to my daughters, even taking them to see her horses. This cottage is world class. It’s our 4th visit and won’t be the last 💕💕💕

    Absolutely amazing holiday home and the grounds are stunning. Gorgeous location and the attention to detail in the property was perfect. Couldn’t fault it, we will definitely be returning . The owner was so kind and the honesty room with toys is a perfect bonus with small children to entertain .

    Lovely place with added extras you wouldn’t have thought you’d get in self catering, such as dressing gowns & slippers, welcome pack in kitchen 😁

    We stayed over New Year and had an excellent break. Lovely modern cottage and the setting was great, very peaceful. Also close enough for daytrips to Edinburgh & Glasgow

    Fantastic stay in Barn Owl Cottage over Christmas. The cottage was lovely, had everything we could need including the best kitchen facilities I've seen in a holiday cottage which was fantastic for cooking Christmas dinner. There were lovely extra touches too and George was very friendly and approachable and so kind to our children. It feels very remote which we loved but was only 15 minutes to Stirling. The perfect Christmas getaway we were looking for as a family with young children

    Response on behalf of the owner; I'm so glad you had a fantastic stay in Barn Owl Cottage over Christmas. Thank you about the comments our kitchen facilities. We try to provide all our kitchens with the sort of facilities and equipment you would expect at home. Why accept less. Hopefully I will be able to welcome you and your children back at Osprey Hideaways in the near future. As you've found out, we are very child friendly.

    Barn Owl Cottage was lovely. So well thought out in every way, with everything at hand, a lovely walk from the door and an easy drive down to Stirling and the M9 which made location perfect. It was so peaceful and comfortable staying here, with the best water on tap ever! We loved the well thought out honesty room with its extensive DVD library that included recent films and good for grown ups as well as kids, not just stuff from years ago like in some places. We appreciated the local knowledge and great advice about getting into Edinburgh (drive and tram from airport end) and would recommend this cottage, or one of the others at Osprey Hideaways, highly
