Alternatively there are many scenic walks within the village and environs. Kippen is a real community with a choice of two busy gastropubs that attract locals and customers from outside the village alike. We have also become a bit of a foodie hub with a deli/coffee shop in the village (Rhubarb and Lime) and the Woodhouse coffee and farm shop & award winning family butcher on the edge of the village. Additionally we have a post office/general store in the village. Both pubs stock a range of beers including those made by our very own micro brewery.

Many overseas visitors choose to hire a car to get around however and there are many companies offering car hire from both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports. The railway and coach stations in Stirling are 10 miles away and the First Bus No 10/12/C12 connects Kippen to Stirling and Glasgow via Balfron.

The SpaceHoused within an A listed 18th Century Steading, at the heart of a beautiful working family farm Old Leckie Farmstay is great base for a holiday. The Steading looks over the historic 16 C Old Leckie house and it is hard not to get caught up in the romanticism of this historic landscape. Guest AccessGuests have fantastic access to the popular walking route that links the pretty villages of Gargunnock and Kippen - only 100m away from the accommodation. They also have access to the paths and farmtracks which wind through the farm and landscaped grounds of Old Leckie House. A fire pit is sited in the field opposite the accommodation providing an evening's marshmallow toasting or impromptu BBQ! Interaction with GuestsWe really enjoy meeting our guests and showing them round the farm. Alison is always available to help plan day trips and itineraries and we can draw from some great local knowledge of great places to visit away from the tourist trail... Fresh farm eggs and home made bread often complement the friendly welcome from the family. The NeighborhoodOld Leckie is a really special place. it is not just a farm. Its not just the beautiful location. Maybe its the feeling of tramping the same ground that Bonnie Prince Charlie did when he visited, or just the feeling that you are re-discovering childhood as you explore secret steps and ancient bridges... come and feel it for yourself... Getting AroundWe would recommend a car to make the most of what our area has to offer, but we have had guests who have only used public transport and taxis, and they had a great time! Other Things to NoteWe would love to show you round when you are here - we can arrange a farm tour to suit your plans. The property has full wifi.

The SpaceThis is a high quality church conversion which we fell in love with when we first viewed it. It is our home when we are in Scotland and is a peaceful beautiful place to be based. The views are stunning and the house easy to enjoy with quality furnishings and fittings and well proportioned rooms. It's central location in the village is ideal and yet it's private and quiet. Kippen is a small and close community and nearby the walks and rural scenery are stunning. The pubs provide great food and atmosphere too after a day exploring. It's not far to visit Stirling, Glasgow or Edinburgh and trips to the hills and the highlands are also easily accessible using Kippen as a base. We love this place and hope you will too. Guest AccessThe entire house and garden. The NeighborhoodConvenient for trips to Edinburgh, Glasgow, The Trossachs, Loch Lomond, hill walking, great cafes, pubs close by, scenic walks and bird watching (many birds visit the garden but also red kites can be seen (if you're in luck!) within 15 minutes walk from the house) Getting Aroundregular bus service to Stirling

The SpaceThe house is spacious and light with fantastic views over amazing hills and mountains. Equally perfect for families (great playing garden) as it is for entertaining and parties. There's parking for 4/5 cars. Guest AccessThe full house, garden, swing set, barbeque. (no access to garage) Interaction with GuestsWe like to leave our guests to enjoy their holiday in peace. So we give you the keys, show you round the house and then leave you to it. We are on hand (about 10 mins away) in case of any problems and always available by phone. The NeighborhoodThe house is just outside a little village of Gargunnock where there is a pub which serves great food. Within 10 minutes are 2 other villages, Thornhill and Kippen, both of which have great pubs with restaurants. The house is less than 45 minutes from Glasgow, an hour from Edinburgh and just 10 minutes from Stirling itself. Its on the road to Loch Lomond! We are 20 minutes from Gleneagles and 1 hour 20 minutes from St Andrews. Getting AroundThe village has an hourly bus service to Stirling but to be honest, you need a car when staying here. Because the house is near the main road, walking to the village is not advised. That said, sometimes you might be loathe to leave the house, especially when relaxing in the conservatory!

            This is a high quality church conversion which we fell in love with when we first viewed it. It is our home when we are in Scotland and is a peaceful beautiful place to be based. The views are stunning and the house easy to enjoy with quality furnishings and fittings and well proportioned rooms. It's central location in the village is ideal and yet it's private and quiet with a traditional pub very near. Also there is a village shop, butcher, a second pub and deli/cafe all within 25 meters, yet the cottage is uniquely private and quiet. Kippen is a small and close community and nearby the walks and rural scenery are stunning. The pubs provide great food and atmosphere too after a day exploring. It's not far to visit Stirling, Glasgow or Edinburgh and trips to the hills and the highlands are also easily accessible using Kippen as a base. We love this place and hope you will too. The cottage has under floor heating throughout. High speed WiFi and a quality entertainment system. The cottage has views from every room over the Scottish Highlands.
