Description

Ochil View, a beautifully presented first floor holiday apartment, is a hidden gem tucked away down a farm track. Sitauted on the owners’ working beef and sheep farm and attached to the farmhouse, it is completely private and is the perfect location for a romantic break. Guests will find Ochil View has been furnished to a good standard and is contemporary, cosy and an inviting holiday apartment, specifically designed for a couple.

The delightful bedroom has a comfortable kingsize bed and robes, slippers and a selection of toiletries provided for your comfort. For a relaxing evening in, the kitchen area is equipped with quality appliances where guests can prepare a romantic candlelit supper and snuggle on the cosy sofa in the open plan living area. Patio doors open out to your own private oak decked balcony with glass balustrades, ideal for a meal al fresco or you can just relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the splendid views over the countryside to the Ochil Hills beyond. Due to the rural location, it is advisable to bring your own transport.

Ideal for walkers and cyclists, Ochil View is perfectly placed for exploring this part of central Scotland. Enjoy a day out at the historic city of Stirling which can be reached within a 30 minutes’ drive, with lots of popular tourist attractions including Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument and Bannockburn Heritage Centre. The city centre has a great selection of restaurants, bistros, cafés and bars and The Marches shopping centre provides retail therapy with high street names and local boutiques as well as a sport centre, multiplex cinema, theatre and museum.

Falkirk provides a great selection of tourist attractions, such as the Falkirk Wheel which is the world’s first and only rotating boat lift. The Forth and Clyde Canal is a must to visit as well as the Kelpies at 30 metres tall, the world’s largest equine sculptures, and Callander House and park. For guests who enjoy outdoor activities, the choice is endless and the Ochil Hills provide great scope for hillwalking in magical glens with peaks such as Ben Cleuch and Dumyat.

Whilst Ochil View is in a quiet rural setting, it is located in the central region/Fife border and therefore close to the road network for easy access to Falkirk, Stirling, Perth, Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Kingdom of Fife. It is a romantic getaway for any time of the year. Beach 16 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 6 miles.

About the local area

Stirling is at the centre of the nation's national heritage, and it was here that William Wallace and Robert the Bruce won independence for Scotland. The city and its castle have had a very rich and turbulent past, being the residence of many Scottish Kings and the scene of numerous sieges and famous battles, including the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297 and Bannockburn in 1314.

The castle is perched on a rocky crag, elevated above the surrounding countryside and is one of Scotland's grandest. Stirling itself nestles in lowland rolling hills and has a lovely `Old Town' with striking architecture and cobbled streets which wind upwards to the castle. The Old Town Jail is now a fascinating attraction depicting the horrors of life in a 19th century jail, also of interest is the medieval Church of the Holy Rude, where James VI was crowned and John Knox preached.

Stirling is an ideal base from which to explore nearby Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The surrounding countryside is lush and fertile with peaceful slopes, rolling countryside and a scattering of town and villages such as the former spa town of Allan Water, with riverside walks and olde worlde charm and Doune with its imposing 14th century castle and award-winning nature reserve.

Perthshire is most definitely the Adventure Capital of Scotland. Here you'll find world class fishing, high level mountain trekking and lower level waymarked forest trails, great on road and off road cycling and superb golf courses. Or maybe try your hand at canyoning, microlight flights or cliff jumping!

Discover a rich diversity of landscapes and habitats that support a range of plants, animals and birds; exceptional woodlands, mighty rivers and high mountains all make this an area a haven for naturists. The River Tay runs through Perthshire to the sea and has internationally important populations of salmon and otters. Many of Perthshire lochs attract breeding pairs of osprey and Loch Leven National Nature Reserve is a magnet for wildfowl. Up in the hills red deer can be heard roaring during the autumn rut.

The small provincial city of Perth is situated on the banks of Tay and has an influential history stretching back over 8,000 years; close by Scone Palace is where many Scottish kings were crowned on the Stone of Destiny. There are many places of interest such as the pretty town of Pitlochry on the river Tummel overlooked by Ben Vrackie; here there are wonderful riverside and woodland walks, also the beautiful Loch Tay near Aberfeldy and Glen Lyon which stretches some 34 miles and has some of Perthshire's finest scenery.
