West Cottage lies in an elevated position to the south west of Dunblane overlooking the surrounding countryside with the Gargunnock Hills to the south. Situated in an easily accessible and highly desirable part of Central Scotland close to the popular towns of Dunblane, Bridge of Allan and Doune, the property is approximately 1.5 miles to the west of the Keir roundabout where the M9 and the A9(T) meet providing excellent road links to Perth to the north and Edinburgh and Glasgow to the south.

Dunblane is a popular residential town and has a good range of local shops supplemented by a Tesco Supermarket and Marks & Spencer Food Store. The town has well-regarded primary and secondary schooling, and Dunblane High School has an excellent reputation and is one of the top 10 ranking state schools in Scotland for Higher exam passes. Private schools in the area include Dollar Academy with Morrisons Academy and Ardvreck Preparatory School both in Crieff, with a further range of independent schools closer to Perth including Kilgraston (girls only), Strathallan and Glenalmond all within half an hour’s drive from the property.

Nearby Bridge of Allan is one of Stirlingshire’s hidden gems. This historic spa town has a thriving centre with a good range of shops, cafés and restaurants. The recently refurbished library is also open to the public and the Macrobert Arts Centre provides a wide range of live performances and includes a film theatre that screens both mainstream and art house films. Stirling itself, situated just 7 miles to the south west, is the major town of Central Scotland. Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument rise high above the town and are testament to its historic past. The modern day town provides an extensive range of shops, restaurants, leisure facilities and all major business and retail services, several superstores including Waitrose and Sainsburys.

The counties of Stirlingshire and nearby Perthshire are renowned for offering a diverse range of outdoor activities and there are numerous routes throughout the surrounding hills and glens for walkers whilst winter sports may be enjoyed at Glenshee. There is an abundance of estates in the local area offering fishing, shooting and stalking. Dunblane and Bridge of Allan offer numerous sporting facilities including golf courses and tennis clubs, with 3 championship courses available at nearby Gleneagles Hotel. Stirling University, home of sporting excellence in Scotland and on the outskirts of Bridge of Allan, offers many sporting facilities which are open to the public, including a near Olympic size swimming pool and indoor and outdoor tennis courts.
