Cottage of the Month
The Doocot is a delightfully secluded cottage for 2, set in woodland beside an 18th Century doocot. Once part of the Rollo family’s Duncrub Estate, and now with a 9-hole local golf course at the end of the garden, there are stunning views of fields and the Ochil Hills from every angle whether you are enjoying an evening glass of wine in the conservatory or breakfasting on the deck.
The log burning stove makes this a perfect all-year-round hideaway. The cottage's clever modern design provides everything that a couple on holiday could need, exceptionally well thought out for visitors' needs. All the rooms are spotlessly clean and decorated to a high standard. You can feast on home grown fruit and vegetables in the summer or try the home produced free range eggs.
