All Scottish cottages

Moorend is set on a beautiful private estate very much in the heart of Scotland. Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and Perth are all within easy reach and on the doorstep are the Trossachs. Sometimes described as the Highlands in miniature, this fabulous landscape of lochs, forest and hills surrounds the house. This cosy holiday home is within stunning and sheltered countryside of ever changing scenery and colour. ?

It is a perfect base for walking, cycling and generally enjoying outdoor life. You can do all this from the back door or choose to drive short distances to specific locations. Many of our guests are nature enthusiast and walkers. Others who want a base for touring round Scotland enjoy returning to the Aga-warmed kitchen at the end of a long day. The property has a large porch which is ideal for kicking of muddy boots, drying off dogs and getting outdoor gear ready for the next day's adventure. There is plenty parking at the house and a garden to enjoy on warmer days. The estate road is a safe place for kids with bikes and the expanse of places to explore is endless for imaginative minds.

The cottage is a practical home from home where we want people to relax and enjoy the countryside living. The estate offers fishing and game and private stalking can be arranged There are good watersport providers in the area and a plentiful supply of nearby golf courses.
