“A nice peaceful cottage”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The cottage is a fantastic place to stay in. It is nice and quiet and the view is just fantastic.
We encountered a lot of wildlife just walking in the hills nearby (rabbits, pheasants, deers, .....) and the cottage is surrounded by meadows with sheep and the famous Highland cows.

The cottage was very clean, very comfortable and very cosy (and very big, we nearly got lost :)).
A very warm welcome (thank you Marian). Always ready to help and advise.

It was very easy to get out and about as the cottage was very central (15 minutes from Stirling, one hour from Edinburgh, the Trossachs were a mere 45 minutes away).

We warmly recommend Garrique cottage if you want to spend a fantastic week in central Scotland

“Just about everything you'll need to feel at home”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Two adults, two teenagers and one mother in law stayed in this spacious three bedroom house (with two separate living room areas) in a fabulous location for our day trips to various parts of Scotland. Day trips to Stirling Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Isle of Skye by way of Loch Ness, St Andrews on the east coast and Campbeltown/Machrihanish on the west coast were very manageable since it didn't get dark til about 10:30pm. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed, from dishwasher detergent to hand lotion to movies and board games. The road leading to the cottage was uphill, curvy and basically one lane but the views along the way were fabulous so we didn't mind it. Beautiful views from the front windows and lovely gardens from the back. Fiona and her husband were very nice and greeted us, even leaving a basket of fresh strawberries on the counter for our arrival. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Scotland who would like a central base for sightseeing. The only negative would be the unreliable internet access, but that was beyond their control.

“A lovely property in stunning surrounds”
Reviewed 26 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We loved our visit to Garrique Cottage and the eggs and tomatoes from the farm that we received upon arrival was a lovely touch. This was a lovely and safe home for our family of six to stay in and well geared to children. Garrique was a great central location to Stirling, Edinburgh and the Trossachs and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly.
