Excellent cottage
Lovely place to stay. The owners are lovely and advised us of some great places to visit. This is the best Sykes cottage we have had so far it is beautifully laid out with everything that you could need for your stay. It is a great distance to travel to sterling, Falkirk and we even did Edinburgh on the park and ride. Loch Lomond is also not far for a great day out on the water. Would highly recommend you won?t be disappointed. We will definitely be back.

Delightful - hit the spot
We've seldom stayed in places which simply exceed expectations - Muirmailing did just that. Absolutely delightful. We visited for a week to catch up with friends and family, including our son who's at the University of Stirling (10 mins drive). The cottage has beautifully finished decor, fantastically comfortable beds, comfy sitting room, well equipped kitchen - everything great. Peaceful and very rural yet within easy striking distance of all amenities and lovely places to eat, and the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh if you want that sort of experience. Great hill walking area, too.

A lovely stay
We stayed at Muirmailing Cottage for 3 nights mid-week in June with our 1 year old boy and would highly recommended it to couples and families. We booked the cottage online based on the photos we had seen and it did not disappoint. From the outside, the cottage is beautiful and in a lovely country setting. There are horses and sheep nearby which our baby just loved! The cottage interior is fresh and modern and finished to a high standard. It had everything we needed. One of the main excursions we had planned was a trip to Blairdrummond Safari Park and it only took us 15 minutes to drive there from the cottage. It is also only 15/20 minutes to drive to Falkirk or Stirling and it took us approx 40 minutes to drive to Edinburgh, so a very central location.The owners were very welcoming and friendly, taking the time to introduce themselves and let us know we could just knock on their door (their house is situated next door to the cottage) if we needed anything. They had also ensured there was a high chair and stair gates for our baby which was very helpful as it saved us bringing our own. We felt 'at home' straight away and were disappointed when our 3 nights came to an end. We'll definitely be back!

Welcoming, Warm and Modern Cottage
Thank you Wendy for your very warm welcome to your lovely cottage. It is modern, very warm and welcoming and very clean. We had everything we needed and more besides. It is very close to Stirling and major roads. But situated very well so it's very quite.Very easy to get out and about from there. Within walking distance of Plean Country Park. There is a shop and pub a mile down the road. Most main shops are in Stirling, but there is an M&S in Stirling services just down the road. It has lovely views over countryside. Even though we stayed over the New Year period the underfloor heating was superb we actually had to turn it down as we got to warm. There was four of us staying in the cottage and have to say having two bathrooms one with a shower in and one with a bath with shower over it was very useful. We had plenty of room. Bedrooms superb and comfortable beds plenty of storage. Large lounge yet very cosy. Lovely kitchen/dining room. Decoration very well thought out. We certainly wouldn't hesitate to go back. Thank you again Wendy.

The cottage was a beautiful, well equipped relaxing retreat in a picturesque setting. The owners were very friendly & helpful. I would highly recommended. I couldn't fault in any way.
