Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Dollar - Harviestoun House

Luxurious 4 bedroom sandstone cottage comfortably sleeping 8

Harviestoun House is a beautifully refurbished 2 storey sandstone cottage in the heart of Dollar, a picturesque small town at the foot of the Ochil hills 13 miles east of the historic city of Stirling.

The cottage comfortably sleeps 8 people in four bedrooms. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor. Bedroom one, with en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobe, has the flexibility of being either 2 twin beds or one superking size bed. Bedroom two has a double bed. Upstairs, reached from the galleried landing, bedrooms three and four can be either twin rooms or have superking size beds. Both rooms share a modern bathroom with over bath shower.

Downstairs the double height sitting room seats 8 people on two three seater sofas and one two seater sofa. There is a log burning stove for you to return to after sightseeing or walking in this beautiful area in the heart of Scotland. The sitting room, like all other rooms, has all new furniture and fittings and gas central heating.

The kitchen, with all modern conveniences including 4 ring gas stove and double electric oven, has a dining table for 8 people and a television with Freeview. Leading from the kitchen is a utility room with washing machine and tumble drier. Also just off the kitchen is a sunroom which leads to the courtyard garden with outdoor seating and barbecue.

Steeped in history, Dollar has all facilities including cafes, restaurants and shopping on your doorstep. Visit 500 year old Castle Campbell, lowland seat of the Duke of Argyll, where Mary, Queen of Scots once lived in the 16th Century. The walk to the castle is by a spectacular series of paths, bridges and walkways in the deep gorges of the glen and its tributaries. Dollar’s other facilities include a small museum and 18 hole golf course notable for its steep inclines and lack of bunkers.

As well as being close to Stirling, Dollar is within easy reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh and St Andrews to the east so you are perfectly situated to take advantage of all Scotland has to offer from this central location.

Fantastic accomadation the only down side for us was the road noise. We live in the country so not used to traffic noise. This was a great house with every thing for a great stay we were never waiting for a bathroom or shower due to the three. The conservatory off the kitchen was ideal for a cuppa and a read. The closeness to the resteraunts superb we would recommend the deli. Great walks and would take our bikes next time. Thank you Bryan for the wine we found it funny about the alarms it shows they work but no one came. The folder with all the information was excellent, the facilities in the kitchen outstanding. This is a lovely cottage to stay would be wonderful at Christmas with the log burner on such a great conversion. I would give this house a 9/10.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Harviestoun House. The road is generally not a busy one however I can understand that coming from the country you may have found it slightly nosier than what you are used to. Hope this detract from an enjoyable stay! Hope you can return ( perhaps one Christmas) when you can fully benefit from the atmospheric log burner!
