Excellent accommodation and hostess

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our 3 teenage children stayed at Ochil Cottage for a week and enjoyed the experience immensely. The house was clean, well kept, spacious and had all we needed. It was also in a central location with easy access to many historic sites like Stirling Castle, the Bruce and Wallace Monuments and various historic battle fields. It is also an easy drive to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Loch Lomond, the Trossachs, the highlands and more. Our hostess Anne was both gracious and accommodating. If you're looking for a pleasant and relaxing place to stay and something that's close to everything yet very quiet and private, this is a great choice.

Cosy and comfy

  • 4 of 5
Although the lane to the cottage was bumpy and narrow, we had no problems getting in and out of the property. Anne did say about parking behind in another accessible street, but we liked the idea of opening the gate.
We had a very warm welcome from Anne, and she told us easy ways to the burn, shops and local shopping centre.
We found it cosy, warm and welcoming,although the bathroom was not quite as big as we had expected.
Some of the kitchen draws were a little unpredictable, but then considering that this is a holiday let and used all the time, wear and tear are to be expected.
A great community to stay in tho' everyone so friendly and a great base on which to return each night, when off exploring...Stirling, Falkirk all in easy reach, a train service at Stirling for various other cities i.e Edinburgh,Glasgow etc.
It's worth visiting the local distillery too in Deanston, it offers great tours at a very reasonable price.
Also the Trossachs and Loch Lomond are in easy reach by car or rail.
The rooms were well kept, clean and the beds very comfy.
Our only real criticism is that we had one night of the owners dogs barking
continuously, which set our dogs off!!
I would overall highly recommend this property and the owner to anyone wishing to visit this area of Scotland, we hope to return again soon ...if Anne will allow us x

Comfortable Stay in Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed for a week, joined by our son and his wife and a friend for 4 nights. For the most part a great stay, but there were a few small issues. The stove top burners weren't marked, so until we mapped them out it was a bit chancy. The kitchen could have been a bit cleaner and we threw out some long-expired canned goods, but those were minor quibbles. I would have liked darker curtains in the bedroom, as the sun seemed to come up very early and set very late - I need darkness to sleep.
The place was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay very much. Would recommend to others.

Really well situated to visit Central Scotland, this cottage was a lovely place to stay in. Everything was easy, the house felt warm and welcoming. The place can really be advised.

Great position but not without problems.

  • 3 of 5
I have thought long and hard whether to write a review or not as I don’t want to sound too negative when this is a lovely cottage in an ideal position for touring central Scotland. However when I arrived and was met by the friendly owner I was informed that tar was coming out of the hot water system. This was said as if it was no big deal and would be fixed.

Well the hot water system was a problem. To get any pressure at all in the kitchen you had to first of all go and run the tap in the bath. This is when you could see the blobs of black stuff coming out. I thought it was more like oil but whatever it was, it was not something you would want to bath in! The tar/oil also came out the hot water tap in the kitchen so the basin and the bath were all marked with this substance.

If you tried to turn the tap in the wash-hand basin to hot you got a drip of water. The owner agreed and said that you could only really get cold water there. Not pleasant for washing in! Luckily, I had no evidence that there was a problem with the shower so that was something.

I think that the problem with the hot water could have been a contributing factor to the fact that the wooden kitchen cupboards and work surfaces were covered in a greasy feel so I had to boil the kettle several times and give the kitchen a good clean.

There is a short road down to the cottage that is not tarred and full of quite large pot holes. These covered over in the rain and created a large puddle so you couldn’t see where the holes were so something to think about it if you have a low hung car.

I am sure the owner will have the hot water system attended to but I see that the cottage is booked right through for the next few months so more occupants are going to have the same problem or of plumbers changing the system.

I would have sympathised and accepted the problem easier if the owner had shown more concern for the inconvenience caused and offered a discount as a gesture of goodwill.

The photographs are very accurate of the cottage and there are a lot of positives but I wanted to be honest and frank with my review.

Owner's Response: was very sorry to hear this woman had so many problems with Ochil Cottage I did have a problem with the hot water which is now fixed it was specks or rust coming in the system
I did contact Carol when I read this review and arrange compensation for her trouble

another thing she mentioned was the lane in to Ochil cottage it is not a tarmac road but there is another you can use at back of cottage which is 20yards walk
