Set within the extensive grounds of a stunning Edwardian house (which now serves as a conference centre), this stylish modern detached house, with its own private entrance, has been designed to a very high specification for a holiday stay and boasts seven bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. Elegantly furnished and particularly thoughtfully finished, the living room overlooks the orchard and has the added feature of a ‘glass wall’, allowing a wide field of view to be taken in. A large grassed garden is available for sole use, and there are very attractive mature gardens and grounds surrounding the conference centre, which have fine views of the Ochil Hills.
The area immediately surrounding the house is rich in history. Known as Rob Roy and William Wallace Country, there are several places of interest to visit, as well as monuments that played a part in the turbulent stories of the past. Nearby is the beautifully restored Alloa Tower, coming under the care of the NTS, which was the ancestral home of the Earls of Mars for centuries, and which affords fine views of the Forth from its parapet walk. From Castle Campbell, there are magnificent views of the hills beyond and down the glen to Dollar – an affluent town that is home to the respected Academy. Flanked by the rushing streams of the Burn of Sorrow and the Burn of Care, the wooded glen leading up to the castle offers a pleasant walk.
Straddling the River Forth, Stirling (just a 15-minute drive away), has the lofty Wallace Monument, which stands proudly as a tribute to William Wallace. From the top of the tower, views across to Fife and Ben Lomond can be savoured. Stirling’s magnificent castle overlooks the town and historical re-enactments are frequently staged here. Also within easy reach are Edinburgh and Glasgow – both lying within a 40-minute drive. Retail outlet village at Tillicoultry, and activities such as golf, riding, hill walking and fishing all available nearby.
