Blashie Cottage was perfect for us - we needed a base from which to explore the area around Stirling where there is so much to see and do - Falkland Castle being an absolute highlight, though nearer to hand you have the imposing and stunning Campbell Castle a stone's throw from the cottage, above Dollar.

Blashie Cottage was everything we hoped for: warm, clean & exquisitely decorated. The owner had dealt with any queries speedily by email in the run-up to our visit, and dropped by to check all was well when we were there, offering us recommendations for local dining and sightseeing.

We loved sitting by the open log fire at the end of the day, though if conversation had run dry, there was a large tv & selection of DVDs to keep us entertained. A games room (shared with the other cottage) had table tennis, darts etc.

Cycling from the cottage was wonderful, with pretty lanes flanked by amazing beech trees and hooking up with the national cycle network path nearby - in fact riding to

Stirling some 15 miles away, you barely use the public roads at all!

One word of warning though - the cottage is heated by electric night storage heaters with boosters if needed. This is run off a metered supply, and if you are not careful you can quickly run up quite a bill. However, the log fire in the sitting room (in a Jet Master fire-place) warms the end of the cottage without running up a massive bill...just a tip!

We would certainly recommend Blashie Cottage wholeheartedly, and look forward to returning there ourselves one day. By the end of our visit we felt like part of the family.
