About the neighbourhood
The Garden Studio is surrounded by farmland within the one acre walled garden at Mackeanston House which provides Dinner Bed and Breakfast in a family home environment. Guests can share use of the all weather tennis court with the family all year round. Dinner can also be booked at Mackeanston House, which takes a maximum of six guests for meals, using first class local produce, much of it organic and home grow. Colin and Fiona are experienced hosts who have welcomed guests to their home for over twenty years.
Getting around
A car is essential to get the best out of the area. DUNBLANE railway station is five miles away. Edinburgh airport is 45 miles. Edinburgh, GLASGOW and Perth are all within one hour travel by car. Ideal central base from which to explore Stirling, Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and beyond.
