    About this property

    Overlooking a private 120-acre loch, this property is located just 4 miles away form the centre of Stirling.
    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.

    "Very comfortable, cosy cottage with outstanding views. Lovely welcome pack and friendly banter with George the owner. Plenty choice of dvds, books, local maps and information in the honesty room. Ideal place for a relaxing break. Would like to return in better weather to explore the walks around the area."

    "Have already recommended this place to others, everything about it was more than we could ever have asked for and the owners are lovely!"

    "Had a good holiday and very relaxing"

    "Loved it here, yes the single track road is a little dicey but it's so worth it for the wonderful views. No complaints at all about the cottage, owners available but not intrusive, would definitely recommend!!!"

    "Unfortunately we had to leave early, but the owner, George, was very helpful, and understanding. He did everything he could to reassure us. We would definitely book to stay with him again. This is an amazing remote location with fantastic views. The cottage was very well fitted out, with plenty of room. We stayed in the 2 person Kestrel, and were very impressed with the cottage. The welcome pack of food, was well received. The views across the Loch are stunning, and watching the Heron every morning was superb. There is a well stocked information room, complete with a large selection of DVDs to play on the Blu Ray DVD player, if there is nothing showing on the TV.We would definitely recommend this property."

    "Amazing. From walking in the door I knew we had chosen well. The owners George and Morag have thought of everything and to the highest of quality. You really do only need to take your clothes! And everything is within 10 minute drive, an abundance of supermarkets, things to do and stunning scenery. We will definitely return as we didn't even scratch the surface!"

    "A very well equipped cottage for a getaway. It's in a quiet spot with a lovely view and plenty of wildlife in the field at the back. The availability of the binoculars was a nice extra and the welcoming pack was the best we've ever had, the only thing missing was an ice cream scoop! The roads approaching the site are a bit rough and need negotiating with care but they are Stirlingshire Councils responsibility and are worth traversing to get to the site."
    Tracy ‐ 20 Jun 2018
    "The cottage is in a lovely position at the top of a slope looking down over a loch with a fabulous view from the large bedroom window. Everything is immaculately kept, and it had everything we needed including a very generous welcome pack on arrival. Towels, bath robe and even slippers were included. The owners have provided an 'honesty room' where you can get a variety of information or borrow games, DVDs etc. though we didn't actually get time to use these as we had only booked 3 nights. The cottage is away from everything but ideally situated for sightseeing - we visited Balloch at Loch Lomond, Stirling Castle, Doune Castle, the Wallace Monument and Edinburgh and also had a lovely evening stroll round the loch next to the cottage. Perfect break!"

    "Best holiday ever hosts were fab views brilliant cottage was fab loved every minute of it"

    "What an absolutely lovely cottage, everything you could think of supplied only need to bring yourself, beautiful view from the cottage and lots to do round about, the couple that have this cottage do it brilliantly definately go back"
    Jane ‐ 24 May 2018
    "Really enjoyed stay. The cottage was really clean and well equipped. The view from the bedroom window was fantastic and the setting so peaceful. Loved returning each evening to the peace and quiet. There were plenty places to visit within easy distance-Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, Bannockburn,The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel. Edinburgh was easy to reach too. Anyone looking for a base would find this a great cottage."
    Barry ‐ 21 Apr 2018
    "Although only 4.5 miles from Stirling it is worth taking your time getting there. The single track roads were a challenge and the numerous potholes in them kept your attention but having got there the cottage was everything as promised. The central heating kept the place cosy. The cottage was beautifully clean, the welcome pack was adequate and the views to the rear are magnificent. The tv and internet connection was patchy but what you would expect in the “wilds”. Overall I loved the cottage and the views and it is a good place to be based if you want to investigate this part of Scotland. The owner assisted us not only with directions to the local hotspots,ie, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Falkirk, but with a minor problem with the shower"
