Salruth cottage is less than 10 miles from two of the top three visitor attractions in Scotland - Blair Drummond Safari Park and Stirling Castle and is less than 8 miles from the historic city of Stirling, 6 miles from the Wallace Monument - and 20 miles from Gleneagles (where the Ryder Cup is being held in September 2014).

The area abounds with scenic, yet inexpensive, golf courses for all standards; provides fishing in local rivers and Gartmorn Dam Fishery; has miles and miles of flat, off-road, car-free family cycling opportunities; features unparalleled off-road walking and running routes.

The cottage itself is less than 3 miles from the magnificent backdrop of the Ochil Hills which, in themsleves, provide hill walking routes for all standards, young and old, with breathtaking views for all.

For the less energetic, Clackmannanshire, Stirlingshire and Fife are steeped in history and offer the shopper a wealth of variety. For the twitcher, Gartmorn Dam Country Park and Nature Reserve provides a temporary home for migratory birds and, for the young and maybe not so young,  an opportunity to feed the ducks and swans.

 

The local train station is less than 10 minutes walk away and Glasgow (30 miles), Edinburgh (35 miles), Stirling (8 miles) and Perth (33 miles) all within easy reach.

 

Other attractions within easy travelling distance of the cottage include Culross, Alloa Tower, Dunfermline Abbey, the Falkirk Wheel and Castle Campbell.

 

Slightly further afield, but still within 50 miles, are Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and St. Andrews.
