Ochil Cottage is part of a renovated set of buildings which has 2 self-catering cottages - if rented together they sleep 14 and are ideal for a larger gathering of friends or family. The cottages are set in the centre of a beautiful estate which farms sheep, cattle and forestry. There is also a commercial pheasant shoot on the estate. The views from the cottage are spectacular and you can see 50 miles on a good day.
The cottage is near Dollar in the Ochil Valley and is in the centre of Scotland with Edinburgh and Glasgow only 50 minutes drive. Both Stirling and Perth are easily accessible being less than 30 minutes away. The Highlands, with all the spectacular scenery that Scotland has to offer, are within easy reach for day trips. There are 50 golf courses within an hour's drive and all the main Links courses of Fife and East Lothian are easily visited - the owner of the cottage runs a golf holiday business so any golf queries can be readily answered.
The surrounding area is perfect for those who enjoy the great outdoors with many places to walk and explore. There are wonderful walks on the Ochil Hills which are just 2 miles from the cottage. Nearby Dollar has shops and pubs and is a great place to visit. Castle Campbell, just north of the town, is well worth a visit. There is something for everyone and the owner can advise on all activities and areas.
