About Mrs Fiona Graham

We have been welcoming guests from all over the world for over twenty five years. We enjoy sharing this beautiful part of Scotland. We are Scots but have travelled and lived in other parts of the world. The family have lived at Mackeanston House since 1946. We are delighted to offer the Garden Studio, a rural romantic hideaway for Two, situated on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park but close to road and rail networks and within an hour of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth with Stirling close by.

Why Mrs Fiona Graham chose Stirling

Peaceful rural location with outstanding views across farmland to the Gargunnock Hills. Ben Ledi can be seen from the drive. Tucked away in the orchard within the walled garden of Mackeanston House offering privacy and seclusion but yet close to major attractions and local pubs. This is no ordinary chalet - the interior is luxurious with enormous attention to detail affording our guests real comfort and style.

What makes this chalet unique

Peace and seclusion in stylish luxurious accommodation surrounded by beautiful countryside in central rural Scotland.

Cozy Country Luxury

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a modest small place in the country, not for luxury amenities. What we got was a small place in the country with most modern conveniences. The "Garden Studio", as Fiona and Colin Graham the owners call it, is clean and modern. It has good cable TV and excellent WiFi Internet. I loved the many windows, the porch, the quiet and the birds. Fiona is very responsive to even minor suggestions or requests, and her welcome package provides for basic food on your first night in.
