Garrique Cottage, Kippen is nestled in the hills west of Stirling, surrounded by fields and woods, and with panoramic mountain views. It is four miles by road from the villages of Kippen and Gargunnock with their gastro pubs and village shops, and eleven miles to the historic City of Stirling with its magnificent castle, fascinating old town, and plentiful complement of large supermarkets, restaurants and other shops. There is plenty to see and visit within a half hour drive, including the Blair Drummond Safari Park, Wallace Monument ( Braveheart), Bannockburn Experience, Falkirk Wheel, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, and the Lake of Mentieth. However many visitors use Garrique Cottage as a base from which to tour Scotland, as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth are less than an hour away, mainly by motorway, and Loch Ness, Saint Andrews, Inverary, and Scone are among the many places easily visited within the day.
