Mallard Cottage

Self Catering

Bolfornought Farm, Stirling, Stirlingshire, FK7 7LL

    Mallard Cottage is a newly renovated two bedroomed luxury farm cottage with spectacular views of Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument & the Ochil hills. It is a perfect location to explore the many tourist attractions of Stirling and beyond.

    Stunning, newly renovated two-bedroomed cottage with amazing panoramic views of Stirling Castle, National Wallace Monument and the Ochil hills situated on a working arable and pedigree beef farm, on the edge of the historic city of Stirling.  Our location is perfect for walkers, shoppers, birdwatchers, golfers, historians and families of all ages.

    It provides a convenient base from which you can explore the surrounding area such as the Blairdrummond Safari Park, local farm shops and the many historic buildings of Stirling.  In addition it is ideally located to enable you to go on day trips to Loch Lomond, the Trossachs (Scotland’s first National Park), Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and St Andrews either by car or train from the local train station (approx. 2 miles away).

    Stirling is the centre of Scotland where Highland mountains and lochs meet the lowland cities.  It is often known as “The Gateway to the Highlands”, due to its historic strategic position.  The city of Stirling is only a few minutes’ drive away where trendy shops in the Thistles Shopping Centre combine with the heritage of Stirling Castle and the Old Town.

    The property is also perfectly suited for the active holidaymaker with excellent sporting facilities at the Peak sports village (incorporating an indoor swimming pool and ice rink), and the National Tennis Centre at Stirling University, all within a few miles of the cottage.

    The cottage is furnished and equipped to the highest standard allowing you to relax and enjoy your surroundings and holiday to the fullest.  All bedding, towels, electricity, central heating, sample toiletries, a small supply of domestic goods (toilet rolls, dishwasher powder, washing-up liquid etc.) & unlimited Wi-Fi are included in the price.  In winter a starter pack of wood is available for the wood-burning stove, with further wood available to be purchased.

    A fresh flower arrangement and a small complimentary basket will be awaiting you on arrival along with tea/coffee and a selection of home made baking.

    For the young at heart a guided tour of our farm is available on request, where children can visit our prize winning herd of pedigree Limousin cattle herd and see the day to day running of a working farm, however they must be supervised at all times by an adult when on the farm.
