Overview

Stirling & Falkirk area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Craighead is a traditional Scottish stone-built farmhouse near Dunblane, Perthshire, the family home since 1990. Over the years it has become 'a favourite meeting place and haunt' for family, friends and those who have stayed in the Muckle Howf, often returning again and again. It offers you a delightful location in which to spend your holiday, either to simply relax or as a base for some of the best Scotland has to offer. "We have stayed in many houses in Scotland. This has been the best!"

Craighead is a traditional Scottish stone-built farmhouse near Dunblane, Perthshire, the family home since 1990. Over the years it has become 'a favourite meeting place and haunt' for family, friends and those who have stayed in the Muckle Howf, often returning again and again. It offers you a delightful location in which to spend your holiday, either to simply relax or as a base for some of the best Scotland has to offer.

What makes it special is the setting combined with the very high standard achieved. It is unique in its quiet country setting, surrounded by natural gardens, a lochan and woodland areas. We have wonderful views, sunsets and privacy, yet thanks to our location we are ideally place to base yourself for easy access to some of Scotland’s finest country and tourist attractions.

Strike out from here to visit Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, Edinburgh or Glasgow or head north for the Highlands, Scotland’s National Parks or the mountains and lochs of the Trossachs. Only a mile and a half from Cromlix House, newly renovated by Wimdeldon champion Andy Murray. Why not treat yourself to lunch or dinner at this must visit venue being overseen by the Roux brothers.

For golfers it couldn’t be better with an array of golf courses available including the famous Gleneagles, walkers and cyclists will find this an ideal base to return to in the evenings.

Or simply relax surrounded by peace, tranquility, wildlife and our variety of animals and poultry. Our free range hens will provide you with your breakfast, eggs can be found in the honesty box at the bottom of the lane!

When the day is drawing to a close it will be time to sit under the stars perhaps by a fire or BBQ and possible enjoy a dram or two.

Ian, Heather & family offer you a warm welcome.

Further details for this vacation rental

Note:

The holiday cottage has its own private parking space, patio area with chairs and table, BBQ area/fire pit, decking with additional seating and private hot tub. You are surrounded by wildlife but should you wish to wonder down to the pond, through the woodlands or up to the main garden you will come across our many animals and poultry. Our two highland cows enjoy a titbit of bread in exchange for photo opportunities.

We have been developing the grounds and garden around Craighead over the past twenty five years. Covering approximately two acres there is lots of variation and it is a lovely place to be whatever the time of year.

The pond has really matured and now attracts a wide variety of bird and wildlife. It is home to brown trout and carp and there is nothing better than taking a bit of time out in the evening to watch them jump.

To book we ask for a 20% deposit to secure the booking with full and final payment due six weeks prior to arrival.

Great place for a weekend break

  • 5 of 5
Just had a great weekend at Muckle Howf. Very comfortable house tastefully furnished and equiped. Hot tub was brilliant and the owners very friendly but not intrusive.
Everything you needed was on hand to make an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended. We were a party of 6 and plenty of space and equipment for us all.

Only complaint my wife had was the early morning wake up call from the resident cockerel. !!!
