Welcome to North Third Cottages a secluded courtyard development

of luxury self-catering cottages set in rural Stirlingshire.

autumn coloursNorth Third Cottages are a newly established family run business set in a truly stunning rural, yet central, Stirlingshire location.

There are five luxury 1 and 2 bedroom courtyard cottages with incredible views across North Third Reservoir. Each cottage is named after birds we regularly see here - osprey, peregrine, kestrel, buzzard and barn owl.

We are perfectly located in the countyside where you can enjoy the peace and quiet, long walks straight from your front door or even casting a line in our fishery as the internationally renowned North Third Trout Fishery is right on your doorstepAs we own the fishing rights each cottage comes with a complimentary bank permit during the season. Although North Third Trout Fishery is currently closed you are still able to fish for wild brown trout.Please note that we are a fly fishing only water.Modern kitchens

The cottages are beautifully furnished with cosy lounges, king-sized beds, luxury linen and bathrobes, power showers and/or baths, flat screen TV, blu-ray players, free DVD library - infact everything you need for a truly relaxing holiday. The central heating is gas fired and all heating and electricity costs are included in the rental.

We have built the new cottages so that they form a farm courtyard that is in keeping with the area. The courtyard, which has a central raised planting area, is spacious and is kept car free at all times. There is dedicated parking to the side of the cottages.

Here you can enjoy the best of both worlds; the peace and quiet of the countryside or the hustle and bustle of the city as we are ideally situated with easy access to Stirling, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth. Although the setting is very peaceful and rural we are only 5 miles from the motorway junction. Better still, we are only 4.5 miles from Stirling and its great choice of restaurants, pubs, shops, cinema, theatre and arguably the best castle in Scotland.

Stirling really is a fantastic centre with something for all tastes. Best of all, nearly everything is open all year round and if you want to see the "big city lights" then Edinburgh and Glasgow are surprisingly quick nd easy to get to for the day. All this means that North Third Cottages is the perfect destination, no matter which month of the year you want to come.

We love where we live and look forward to sharing it with you.
