Exclusive Unique Woodland House Loch Ard Forest/ The Trossachs Aberfoyle

Family-friendly holiday home in Stirling
Craigmuick Cottage is a beautiful Scottish House located inside Queen Elizabeth Forest Park by Loch Ard. Its extraordinary location is unique & secluded but only 2 miles from Aberfoyle.

The bubbling River Duchray passes by at the side of the grounds, and the area is a haven for birds and other wildlife including osprey, red kites, red squirrels and red deer. Dating back to the 1800’s, it was once the home of Scottish poet William Glen ( 1783-1826); the cottage has been lovingly renovated and furnished to a very high standard, keeping some of the original features alongside contemporary and excellent quality fittings.This traditional house offers spacious accommodation for 10, plus 1 infant ( if required).

The dining area with a large table, is the perfect spot for the whole group to sit together at breakfast and plan the day’s activities. The contemporary kitchen offers excellent quality appliances including a range cooker, and is thoughtfully equipped with everything you will need to prepare a family meal or a celebration dinner. Just off the kitchen is an spacious utility room with laundry facilities, handy for hanging wet coats and storing muddy boots. There is also a cloakroom and double bedroom with en-suite facilities.

3/5 Okay

Nice getaway, bad host
Property is nice however it is in the middle of nowhere, you need to drive through miles of potholes and dodgy roads, car will 100% get damaged on way. As for the host no matter how clean you leave the place or try to tidy up she will try and blame you for damages and mess and will take your deposit. Would not advise on staying in this property

5/5 Excellent
