About Gillian Reilly

My husband and I moved to The Orchard and Blair Drummond last year. We love living in the countryside. Originally I am from Port of Menteith and my husband from Killin. We have spent many years living and working in Edinburgh so it's nice to be back living in familiar territory. I am a secondary school Geography teacher although I am currently taking time out to raise our family. Between my husband and I we can give you lots of tips on places to visit in the local area (I might even draw you a map!). I love meeting new people - you will receive a warm welcome at The Orchard.

Comfortable and very clean

Gillian was the perfect hostess. The house had everything we needed. It was just the perfect size for two people. It was close to Stirling and several other small communities worth exploring. We highly recommend this property.

Excellent !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our little lad (2 1/2 years old) for a couple nights as we was heading to the Safari Park at Blair Drummond which was only a few miles a long the road and very easy to find.

This maissonette was excellent, very spacious and very clean. With 2 x 2 seater sofas (1 which is a comfy sofa bed), dining table and a well equipped kitchen. There was a double bed in the bedroom with the en-suite off it, also a large cupboard for storing stuff if you were on a longer stay.

Tea, coffee and biscuits / chocolates were provided, also there was a couple bottles of water and a carton of apple juice for the wee lad in the fridge which was all excellent.

TV with a Freesat box and a DVD player provided, also there was loads of site seeing flyers for all the places about which would be very handy. WIFI code was included in the welcome booklet.

There was also an outside sitting area with table and chairs, unfortunately for us the weather wasn't quite nice enough to get the use of them.

After booking the owner got in touch to see if there was any special requirement etc and again in the week before we arrived.

All in all an excellent place to stay and if I need a place in that area again I will definitely look to stay here again.
