The Bothy is nestled within idyllic open Stirlingshire farmland just minutes from Stirling city centre. This is a most unique property enjoying a peaceful rural position yet such a short distance from an abundance of amenities in Stirling, granted city status in 2002 as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee.
Stirling is clustered around a large fortress and medieval old town. Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling contains the Great Hall and the Renaissance within Stirling Castle. Stirling also has its medieval parish church, the Church of the Holy Rude, where King James VI was crowned King of Scots on 29 July 1567. The Holy Rude still functions, with a service every Sunday.
This corridor of the country has endured lasting popularity with commuters, enjoying enviable communications and easy access into the main motorway networks. There are medical, professional and business services, extensive High Street retailing, a shopping centre, a retail park, a number of large superstores and an abundance of leisure facilities in Stirling.
There is a plethora of local walks and reputable salmon and trout fishing on the River Teith. Nearby Loch Lomond is renowned for its water sports including sailing, windsurfing, water skiing and wake boarding, as well as further fishing. Golfing opportunities in the area include courses at Stirling, Callander, Buchanan Castle, Balfron and Dunblane. The international acclaimed golf courses of Gleneagles Hotel, which recently hosted the Ryder Cup, are also within easy reach.
There are well-regarded primary and secondary schooling in the area, which is supplemented by a range of private schools including Dollar Academy, Beaconhurst in Bridge of Allan and further private schools in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perthshire.
