About Deborah Quinn
My husband Mark and I live in the main house that the cottage is attached to. The cottage is completely standalone but we are usually on hand to welcome guests and answer questions that might arise. We have been renting the cottage since 2004 and have many returning guests. Mark grew up in Dunblane so we moved back to Kippen from London to be near his family and enjoy the beautiful village of Kippen and surrounding area. We have a son and a little dog who loves to all the walks around the village.
Deborah Quinn purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Deborah Quinn chose Stirling
The cottage benefits from being out in the countryside but close enough to walk to the lovely village of Kippen. It is very peaceful and surrounded by wildlife (birds of prey, roe deer, rabbits). At night it is dark and you can see the stars. The 3 acres of garden and woodland are open to guests to enjoy along with the cottage's own dining and garden area. Kippen is a great location. It is a beautful village with 2 fantastic pubs, a deli, award winning butcher and local shop. The village is great for walking and is surrounded by woodland which dog walkers particularly enjoy. One can easily explore the Trossachs and Loch Lomond and the cities of Stirling, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
What makes this Cottage unique
The peace and quiet, the wildlife, spacious accommodation and large log burning stove.

We all appreciated the bright cheerful and roomy accommodations. All furnishings well chosen to provide comfort and ease. We could not have felt more welcome. Thank you!
Lovely cottage in beautiful area
A spacious cottage in a lovely position. Kippen is well placed to visit the beautiful Trossachs. Debbie was very welcoming and helpful.
Not much luxury in this cottage
We would say that this cottage was not a luxury cottage by any means. There was certainly a lot of space but we feel it was"tired" and needed some t.l.c. The cooker was absolutely disgusting didn't fancy using it. The green bin under the table was filthy. We would not recommend this cottage.
We are sorry that the oven and bin were not cleaned to our usual high standards and we've spoken to our cleaner about this. We're not sure what is meant by the suggestion that the cottage is tired though both sofas were stained by guests before you and have been replaced since your stay. Other than that a 5 star review on this same site from guests who stayed in May earlier this year proves, perhaps, that you can't please everyone all the time.
Comfortable,stylish and spacious cottage
Light, airy and comfortable cottage within walking distance of Kippen and it's two wonderful pubs and deli. Walkers paradise.
Many thanks for your kind comments. We hope you'll come back and stay with us again. Mark & Debbie
The cottage was perfect for us. Debbie and Mark were very friendly and the place is great for dogs which suited us. Lovely wood burning stove and well stocked comfortable cottage. Great walks on the doorstop... Just the break we needed - very relaxing!!!
Arngomery cottage is in a beautiful and tranquil location amidst pretty countryside and farmland but with village shops and good places to eat within a mile. The cottage is a lovely home and is a wing of the adjoining Arngomery Court, a handsome 17th century building.
The cottage is a home and is warm, welcoming and comfortably and stylishly furnished and decorated. The kitchen is very well equipped and all is kept very clean and well maintained. It has a lovely gardened and naturalised garden at the rear where it's great to sit and contemplate the beauty and quiet, the birds, wildlife and plants and listen to the nearby stream. Sometimes cattle and sheep graze the adjoining fields and there are walks to enjoy from the property.
The owners Debbie and Mark, are lovely people who couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. We have been to the cottage about 5 times now and I always look forward to seeing Arngomery House as we arrive down the drive and to spending a great week at the cottage.
I would recommend this cottage and have done so on several occasions.
This suberb central location is situated next to the lochs and mountains, yet is also within an hour's drive of the city attractions of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Beautiful Loch Lomond and the picturesque region known as the Trossachs are within a 12 mile radius. There are various places of interest to visit, such as the nearby town of Stirling with its historic castle and the Wallace Monument. Doune Castle and Dunblane Cathedral are also close by. The region offers excellent walking whether it be a gentle stroll round a loch or a more challenging hike up Benn Ann or Benn Ledi. The area is also good for mountain biking, golf and sailing. If this seems a bit too strenuous, you can still enjoy the mountains and lochs by taking one of the many scenic drives. Alternatively, when you just want to take it easy, you can always relax in the peaceful surroundings of Arngomery Cottage.
