Welcome to North Third Cottages a secluded courtyard development of luxury self-catering cottages set in rural Stirlingshire.

North 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.

North Third Cottages 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 doorstep. As 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.

Accommodation

north third cottages stirling

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.

Opened in April 2012, each of the five cottages are very spacious and furnished to a very high standard. The central heating is gas fired and all heating and electricity costs are included in the rental. If you require a starter pack of groceries we are happy to arrange this. We can also provide a cot, high chair and stair gates.

Each cottage comes with luxury linen and towels and, for that home from home feeling, we also provide slippers and bathrobes.

Further Information

north third cottages stirling

There's washing facilities and secure storage for mountain bikes. If you are an angler then we offer free fly fishing for wild brown trout in our own 140 acre loch - and it's just at the bottom of the field.

There's a small common room where you can borrow DVDs, blu-rays, books and games. You'll also find lots of information on what to do in the area. We live "on-site" so are usually around if you need anything.

The stunning scenery and fantastic range of local activities makes staying at North Third Cottages a truly memorable experience. The walking in the immediate area is truly spectacular and offers the visitor easy access to one of Scotland's most accessible cliff top walks - right from your front door.

At North Third Cottages, 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 and 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.

If you would like further information about our stunning holiday cottages please just contact us. We will be happy to help and, as we've lived here for 28 years, can provide you with information on what to do and where to go.

We are busy working on having online availability and online booking but at the moment its best to contact us by email or by phone.
