It was an excellent location for touring the area. We liked the fact that the cottage was very quiet and secluded. The owners were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The cottage was very comfortable and we felt very much at home.

December 2015
First impressions of the cottage were super. We had travelled 300 miles through strong winds, heavy rain and sleet, and arrived in a warm and cosy cottage which was immaculately clean well and equipped. It felt as if we were coming home. Though the cottage is in a rural area it is close to the motorway and several places of interest are easily accessible. The owners are most helpful with directions and are on hand should there be any problem. We could recommend this cottage whole heartedly.

Everything was absolutely perfect. The owner was warm and friendly and went out of her way to see that we had a good time. The cottage itself is immaculate, the garden and grounds very pretty. Our holiday time there was a favorite memory of our 10 days in Scotland.

We could not fault our stay here! The standard to which Muirmailing Cottage has been renovated is lovely! We had a warm welcome and a wonderful time there, it has everything you would need for a tranquil holiday, or if you prefer an active holiday then there are plenty of activities in easy reach! Can't recommend this property enough!

My sister and I had a relaxing break based in this very comfortable cottage. It is based in a very convenient situation close enough to towns and attractions but in a pleasant and quiet rural setting. The accommodation is lovely - beautiful bathrooms, quality furnishings etc. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners.
Mr Sharp
November 2014
The cottage was beautiful. The owner was very welcoming and had clearly taken a great deal of trouble over the refurbishment of the property. We absolutely loved it and would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family. The location was ideal for us, close to motorway links but with all the peace and quiet that would be expected from a country cottage.

Mrs Scott
October 2014
The cottage, beyond its quaint stone exterior, was like new - immaculate and so comfortable. The rural setting is very peaceful and we enjoyed the gardens and pets. The Muirmailing cottages were perfectly located, so we could set out each day in a different direction and discover Scotland. We could not have been more pleased!

Just about everything you want in a letting is present. You are in the middle of nowhere with only the birds disturbing of the silence.
Mr Henri
August 2014
That was our first stay in Scotland and we really enjoyed it. In particular because the cottage was very very pleasant. The cottage was thoroughly and recently entirely renovated. Everything is well done and thought out. The owners are very kind. There are a lot of things to do around no more than one hour driving. We recommend it!
Mr Aylin
August 2014
The location was perfect - it felt to be in the middle of nowhere but the Cottage was 15 minutes from Stirling and less than an hour from both Glasgow and Edinburgh. The Cottage itself was beautiful and the the owners were helpful and lovely.

The cottage was absolutely brilliant. It had all the facilities we needed, plenty of information about the local area and the owners made us feel very welcome and were on hand to answer any questions we had.
Mr Ball

The Cottage was far better than expected, this was easily the best cottage we have stayed in and the owner was always keen to help with anything we needed. The cottage was located within reasonable distance of the central belt major cities with easy access to the motorway. I will recommend this cottage to my friends and family. Thankyou for a great holiday.

Of the many cottages in Britain & Ireland we have stayed in over the years, Muirmailing Cottage is easily the best. It is spacious, beautifully furnished and maintained with everything we needed for a comfortable week's stay provided. Wendy was very welcoming and helpful and always available if we needed anything but we never had any problems. We chose this accommodation mainly because of it's location, which is close to the motorway network. This allows easy access to Stirling, Glasgow, The Trossachs, Perth, Fife, St Andrews, the Lothians & Edinburgh. Many major tourist attractions are therefore achievable as a day-trip. Although close to the motorways, the cottage itself is in a quiet rural area with nice views. There is a plant growing business on the site but this caused us no disruption. There are also friendly cats, dogs and horses on the site, which is a bonus for animal lovers.

My husband and I stayed at Muirmailing with our young children (2.5 years and 1 year old) for a week in March. The cottage is a lovely mix of the old building with lots of modern yet homely features inside. It's set up very well for children - we were able to request a highchair, stair gates and cot which saved us packing those bulky extras! It is also stocked with everything you could need - all kitchen and bathroom products - with a system that you replace what you finish. This works brilliantly. Wendy and Graham are very welcoming and gave us lots of tips on places to visit, where to park and which roads to take (thank you!). And we were delighted to see the ponies and dogs every day. It feels like you are part of the working nursery. Muirmailing is in a great location, very peaceful but with good links to towns and cities. We enjoyed trips to Stirling, Bridge of Allan, Loch Lomond and Edinburgh, all easily accessible. We could not fault it at all, it was the perfect break!

In the country side but very close to motorway access. Quiet location with lovely countryside views. Extremely well equipped and furnished. Would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to this property.
October 2014
We only stayed here for a couple of days while visiting friends up for the Ryder cup so didn't really get a flavour of the area. But it is only 15 minutes from Stirling, and we passed by the Kelpies and Falkirk wheel on the way so there are certainly attractions in the area. The cottage itself was just lovely. Very clean as might be expected from something only just opened this year. It was also very well equipped and furnished. The location was very quiet for our visit with lovely views across the country side. It is however in the grounds of the owners nursery business so might get busier in the spring. That said I don't think a few visiting gardeners is too much to cope with and our 20month old daughter loved wandering amongst the plants almost as much as she loved visiting Mimi and Penny the resident horses. In all a really relaxing stay in a lovely part of the country.
