About Mrs Carolyn Hunter
My name is Carolyn, I am married to Alan and we have a 13 year-old daughter. We live in Stirling, so only 10 minutes away from the Cottage. I grew up near Stirling in the Clackmannanshire village of Menstrie and went to College in Glasgow. I have spent some time in the North East of England but moved back to Stirling in 1994, where our families still live. We share our house in Stirling with my parents who live in the garden flat located under our house. It is lovely for our daughter to have her grandparents so close by.
Mrs Carolyn Hunter purchased this cottage in 2009
Why Mrs Carolyn Hunter chose Stirling & Falkirk area
We purchased this property with a view to moving into the property to live, however this didn't go quite according to plan, so we have decided to let the cottage as holiday accommodation. Having lived in the Stirling area for many years, this was a property that every time we drove past, we always commented on it and imagined how lovely it would be to live there. It is such a pretty, rural setting and yet ideally placed for so many attractions, shopping, walking and other leisure activities.
What makes this cottage unique
We particularly love the Cottage when the sheep are out in the neighbouring field as you feel you could practically reach out and touch them when you catch sight of them through the window located half-way down one of the staircases. It is a very private property and yet it is right on the main road into Thornhill so you don't have to drive miles up a single track road to get a lovely feeling of seclusion. The cottage looks particularly attractive in the evening when all the lights are on and with the sky being particularly dark in the country, this adds to the atmosphere.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Group of guys stayed with me and we wanted something spacious, cosy and quiet. This fit the bill perfectly. Stirling only 8 miles away so didn't seem too far from the city. We all would stay therer again and I got credit for the location so thanks to the owners for making us all feel at ease and welcome.
