Wonderful family stay in charming village

  • 5 of 5

Our family came from the U.S. to spend a week in this area and found both Burnside House and the villages of Deanston and Doune to be better than expected. The house was very clean and had everything that we needed. Beds were comfortable and having 4 bathrooms for the 8 of us was terrific. We found much to do in the area, including several days in the Trossachs, a day to see the sites in Stirling, and several nearby towns. We enjoyed walking in the local towns, especially the path to the Doune Castle. We enjoyed the Red Lion Pub in Doune and went back several times. We highly recommend the Burnside House.

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Burnside House was brilliant, Brenda was fantastic to deal with regarding the booking and the house exceeded our expectations.

My wife, never on to give high praise, was blown away by the size of the house, the attention to detail and quality of everything provided. We were a party of 7 adults and 2 children and if you ever needed to find your own space, you could as the house is that big.

All the bedrooms have en suite facilities apart from one bedroom which is directly opposite what my grand daughter referred to as the "swimming bathroom" as the bath was that big!

The kitchen was huge, with an American style fridge, dishwasher, 2 fan ovens and a halogen hob. All appliances were in perfect condition and super clean.

The linen and towels provided were all top notch.

The welcome basket was a definite hit in our eyes.

The games room was enjoyed by all of us and a fair bit of "hustling" happened on the pool table.

Brenda had decorated the house for Christmas and it was perfect - thank you so much.

Our stay was best summed up by my eldest grand daughter - " I dont want to leave here".

Location wise it's very central and you can get to most places reasonably quickly.

It was so good we are already looking at booking again for next year!

If you want luxury, space, peace and quiet with everything you need in the house or on your doorstep look no further.

Amazing property in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Burnside House is a a luxurious house which was perfect for our family holiday. Our three children, aged 12, 14 and 15 loved having their own double beds and bathrooms and the fantastic games room. We enjoyed the peace upstairs and the sunlounge, with patios either side, was an added bonus. The location was perfect for visiting the lochs and hills on one side, Stirling Castle close by and Edinburgh on the other side. The owners, next door, were friendly and welcoming and provided excellent customer service. We highly recommend this holiday house!

Fabulous Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The Burnside House is perfect, so much space. There was 8 of us and we had more room than we could use. This is a 5 star accomodation. Brenda was great to deal with and all went smoothly. We took a cab from the Airport and used buses and trains to get around. We loved the town of Doune 15 minute walk and had a blast at pub in town. If you love fishing be sure to walk behind Doune castle to see the river. A car would be helpful for groceries and quick travel but either way you will love this place. Do not hesitate to rent from Brenda you will be delighted.

Stirling is 20 min by bus to the train station. You can go anywhere from the train. Don't miss Stirling Castle, check out the explorer pass may save you money. We loved Scotland.

Thanks, Brenda

PS. my sister in law has stayed in many places and said she has not seen any better. NICE JOB!

A beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Everything we thought it would be and more.

Watch out for very hot "scalding water." My Mom suffered a burn in the bathtub.

Other than that, all was wonderful.
