Kippen, Scotland
Garrique Cottage offers spacious and well equipped accommodation within easy reach of many of Scotland's most historic and scenic attractions. It is quiet and peaceful, with fantastic views, but close to good local pubs, cafes, and village shops.
It has its own hard tennis court and there are six reasonably priced golf courses within half an hours drive.

The kitchen/ dining/living room provides an ideal space for family activities, with doors out to a new decking area. Steps lead down to a private garden where children can play safely. The separate sitting room has a wood burning stove, and offers a haven for those who want to read, watch TV, play games or gaze at the ever changing skies over The Trossachs. The wide variety of local birds and animals is much enjoyed by many visitors.

The cottage is a fantastically centra...

Just returned from a week holiday with my wife and 3 children using Garrick cottage as a base for days out and exploring. Location is fantastic for day trips to Edinburgh, Trossacks and surrounding lochs. Glencoe about 1.5 hours drive but well worth it. Accommodation is in a great location nestled in the hills with fantastic views. We stay in...

Thank you for your thoughtful comments. We are glad you enjoyed so many aspects of the cottage, and are sorry you found it had drifted a bit below your exacting standards after a wonderfully busy summer. We had reserved the week after you left for a thorough spring clean, which has now been completed, with various items renewed. We trust...

Very nice view and very silent. Plenty of space for the whole family. The weather was not sooooo good, but enough to do in surroundings. Thank you.

Management response:
