About Dorothy Parker
I am artist. My husband Neil and I both worked for BBC television for many years. We moved to Aberfoyle because we loved the area and were always visiting at weekends. When the perfect house came up in the perfect location we couldn't resist! We love living here and hope you will enjoy your visit too. Many of our guests come back every year.
Dorothy Parker purchased this House in 2010
Why Dorothy Parker chose Stirling
The house is ideally situated. We are in the heart of the Trossachs, one of Scotland's most beautiful areas. You can walk out the door to a loch, be up a hill or in the village in minutes. Just a short drive will take you to the most varied scenery. Every season is lovely and the wildlife is endlessly fascinating. We have deer in the woods above the house and ospreys nesting on Loch Ard. it's also really easy to reach Glasgow, Stirling or Edinburgh.

Great stay at The Hayloft
The Hayloft is beautifully situated on the outskirts of Aberfoyle. A great tranquil place with lots of wildlife around. We saw various birds in the great garden inclusing a sparrow hawk and a buzzard. Also a red squirrel and a pine marten came feeding in the garden. The house is big enough for two adults and two children, Well equiped. A great place to stay with Aberfoyle and the rest of The Trosachs at your doorstep.
Very comfortable property, many thanks
We stayed at the Hayloft for a week during February half term. Dorothy and Neil were both very friendly and I'm sure that had we needed anything they would have been happy to help.
As it was, the Hayloft was so comfortable and well-equipped we wanted for nothing. The garden adjoining the Hayloft is beautiful and tranquil. The area around the Hayloft is perfect for local walks and seeing the sights of the Trossachs. Aberfoyle with shops and pubs is a 15 min walk or a couple of minutes drive.
A lovley relaxing stay in one of the better properties that we have rented over the years. many thanks!
Comfortable cosy cottage. Well equipped and clean. Close to forest and lakeside walks!
Lovely place to stay in a great location for exploring the Trossachs
Quiet, good location for exploring the Throssacs
the owners are very nice and helpfull, but the property is rather basic... and could use some improvements/renovations
The garden is very nice!
Lovely little cottage which we felt was a good size for 2-3 people but maybe a squeeze for 4-5. Some of the crockery and kitchen equipment were chipped and tired and could be replaced, general cleanliness could have been better. Well equipped with books, games, local info and DVD's. Beautiful garden but the midges prevented us from using it !
Great location for exploring the stunning countryside and walking into Aberfoyle for a pub meal. Overall we had a good time.
