  • "The place was cold the heating came on randomly, there was open food left in the refrigerator , ashes in the log stove, the kitchen was dirty ( we took pictures) before and after when it was cleaned up."

    . no curtains on the bedroom upstairs, when the owner was called he said at least you can see the stars , very disappointing

    Dear Nancy, Thank you for your comments – I was surprised to read them today given you said via your email sent on the 24th October `We rented your lovely cottage last week …. Thank you for renting your cottage to us` Given this inconsistent feedback from you I would like to address your public points in order: 1) We saw that during your stay the temperature was generally above 20C. One example is that on 19th October you had the heating on for 9 hours 46 minutes from Midnight with a maximum of 25.3C. I have already sent you an email privately with evidence of this. The temperature in the house was between 20 and 25C round the clock which we haven’t seen with any other guests. 2) Kitchen – I thought I had done a good job to clean the kitchen throughout before you arrived so it would be useful to see your pictures. The butter was left in the fridge on purpose for guests convenience and this gesture has been appreciated previously – sorry to hear you don’t see it in the same way. 3) The ashes in the log burner would not prevent your use. I thought that you would have appreciated that we also dropped off 2 additional large bags of wood which you used up during your stay. 4) The curtains – we don’t have curtains on the velux windows but obviously we do have on the normal windows as shown on the pictures available to you prior to your booking. None of the velux windows are overlooked. I personally like to be able to see the stars on the clear nights and more occasionally the Northern Lights. Despite my personal view, I appreciate your comment and shall install blinds to cater for different guests needs. Other feedback from me: I tried to communicate with you with directions and local information since July but had no responses until one day before your arrival when your friend called my wife. On the arrival day your friend called me about the curtains. Before I could give a full answer to offer any options, he cut me off. I would naturally have offered an option to install blinds but had no chance to say this. Property Owner

  • "We want to thank Bob for his good care."

    His house is very comfortable, clean and loved. We enjoyed our stay at Ninevah very much and would recommend this house to everyone we know.

  • "Great property."

    Well maintained and clean . Owner was nice enough to leave some complimentary food essentials. As a suggestion, It would be great if the backyard could be improved with some greenery.

The property

Strathyre 2.9 miles.

Enjoying exceptional views across the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is Ninevah, a stone-fronted, three-bedroom cottage, resting in Auchtubh near Strathyre, Stirling.

Set rurally, offering a peaceful base with a wealth of walking, and cycling opportunities in the area, Ninevah makes a wonderful home for a family break, inviting up to six guests.

Travel down the countryside track before parking up in the courtyard, taking in the expansive vistas enveloping your new home.

Head indoors to firstly reach the homely sitting room, complete with plush seating, a large, wall-mounted TV, and a rustling woodburning stove, to light on cooler evenings.

Locate the kitchen/diner, well-equipped for a self-catered stay, where you can even keep on top of your washing, whilst the dining room offers the perfect space to eat, socialise and host your loved ones.

As the sun sets over Scotland, catch some rest from one of three spacious and well-appointed double bedrooms; the first is set on the ground floor with a handy shower room next door, ideal for those with limited mobility.

Upstairs you'll find the two further bedrooms, serviced by a bathroom with a lovely corner bath and shower over.

Refresh and prepare for your upcoming adventure, before enjoying a coffee in the suntrap conservatory, providing access to the rear, enclosed patio.

Grab your walking boots and traverse across the surrounding hills, where you'll also be presented with the chance to summit either Ben Vorlich, or Ben More, or discover the beauty of Loch Voil, for an afternoon of wild swimming and kayaking, whilst the Cycle route 7 is nearby, perfect to follow for tours of the region.

By car head into Callander, home to a golf course, and a hub of amenities dotted across River Teith, recommended to visit to stock up on the essentials or dine out as a family.

Travel towards Crieff, stopping off at the picturesque landscape of Deil's Cauldron Waterfall, or a daytrip to Auchingarrich Wildlife Park, whilst heading south will bring you to the Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park sure to please the children of your group.

Escape to rural Scotland by booking Ninevah. EPC Rating Band: D

About the location


Callander 7 miles.

The small village of Strathyre, Gaelic for 'broad winding valley', lies at the head of Loch Lubnaig, sheltered by Ben Ledi, Ben Vane and Ben Shian, just seven miles from the historic town of Callander. Strathyre has long been popular with visitors, starting as a resting place for cattle drovers and today offering a café, a local village shop, Post Office and a pub serving food. Beautiful, lush green forests cover the hills on each side of the valley, attracting walkers, cyclists and fell runners annually, with the Strathyre Stuc a Chroin 5000 hill race (a gruelling 5000 ft ascent) competing every May. A short drive will take you to Callander, with its 18-hole golf course rated to be among the top ten courses in Scotland, whilst a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants and the McLaren Leisure Centre are also available. Every July, Callander hosts the World Highland Games, and the town’s Rob Roy Tourist Information Centre and riverside walks through The Meadows are not to be missed! A lovely location for all the family!
