Why On line booking at finnichcottages.com chose Stirling
Finnich Malise Estate had been little cared for for many years and presented a major and exciting challenge to us when we bought it. First priority was to repair and re-decorate the beautiful Georgian house and then to start recovering the parkland with its 200 year old trees. A separate project was to completely re build the derelict 19th century Steading buildings and convert them into 4 holiday cottages. The projects continue with the recent planting of 9 ha of mixed Scottish woodland.
What makes this Cottage unique
The uniqueness of the Finnich Malise estate which was evident to us when we first saw it, was its location. Close enough to Glasgow and Stirling but positioned in its own 200 acres of grounds to give total peace and tranquillity, with stunning views to the western North over the National Park and with easy access to Loch Lomond , 5 miles away.

Very comfortable stay.
A place to return to
We are a family of 4, with 2 wee girls, and a dog. We had a lovely time here, where the girls were not bored at any point. There were either playing in the garden, discovery new tracks, or having fun in the hall. The location is great, just spot on, great views, tranquil, fantastic surroundings, and close to many good attractions from Loch Lomond to Stirling. And we didn't have any problem with the dog, who also had a fantastic time.
I definitely recommend it and we will be back.
Very nice accommodation set in beautiful surroundings
We spent 4 nights in Birch Cottage. Lovely cottage and location to explore trossachs and excellent value.
We had a great stay. The property was very clean and in good working order. Lovely views and great base for exploring Loch Lomond.

Nice cottage in perfect surrounding
Absolutely glad we found this cottage. We enjoyed our 2 weeks stay very much, really nice cottage, clean and with nice furniture. Plenty of room for 4 persons, plus extra rooms for laundry and gaming like table tennis and pool billiard. The owners were very friendly and supportive, gave us a lot of good hints for things to visit in this great scottish area. We will definitely come back for a second visit there, as there is still so much to see and do in the loch lomond area.
Thanks a lot!
So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you on your next visit!
