A great, central location for exploring Stirling, The Trossachs and surrounding areas

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean, spacious and well equipped. Janet was just a text away if we needed anything. A great location for exploring Stirling and the surrounding area. The Blackford village store is amazingly well stocked for such a tiny shop!

Perfect for our family’s visit

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Victorian home in the village of Blackford. I have family in the village and it made our visit to Scotland extra special. We were able to walk to Grandmas house.

3 bedrooms for our 6 people , a large beautiful garden with wonderful views from every window.

Working with Janet the owner was a delight and we will be back! Thank you.

Lovely comfortable beds with clean, crisp linens and down comforters.

Fully equipped kitchen with all essential dishes and cutlery.

A lovely tea set up with shortbread to welcome us too.

The washer and dryer were great for laundry.

Would highly recommend anyone wishing to visit Perthshire wanting to experience a true gem of a Scottish village , book this home. You will not be disappointed.

This was a dream!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house so much. It was comfortable and bright and full of the wonderful character that mansions of the early 1900’s possessed. Janet was wonderful. She gave us recommendations on excellent visits and they were phenomenal! We would stay here again without hesitation.

Great stay - super host

  • 5 of 5

Host met us and ensured we had everything we needed and made timely recommendations on places to eat and locations to see. Even came back over to show us how to unlock the door - easy to do when you know the process!
