Owner had my husband move our car several times because he was not straight enough between the lines in the parking area. No shoes were allowed to be worn in your room. We had no towels or glasses and could not find any towels. Beds left little to be desired. We had to leave early to catch an early flight... More

Excellent position for exploring this part of Scotland, John the owner, very knowledgeable with local information. Huge cooked breakfast, nothing is too much trouble. Bed could do with a better mattress, but all facilities as they should be.

We (me, husband and 5 year old daughter) were going to Blair Drummond Safari Park and needed an overnight stay. This place is easy to reach, great location for the Safari Park, very friendly, great breakfast.

We drove up from the South West with our good friends Margaret and Dai in their car on Sunday 20th May 2013. We had talked for years about travelling up to Scotland to see the village (Sauchie near Alloa) where Margaret was born. Jon Darby happened to be at the door to greet us as we arrived and he was...

The host of Hillview Cottage went out of his way to make sure we had a good stay. We wanted to have a nice dinner with beer or wine for our last night in Scotland but did not want to drive. So our host graciously drove us to a nearby pub, introduced us and gave instructions how to get a... More

We were looking forward to staying here. The place might have had age but nothing else. We arrived to very small car park, to a very tired un-kept entrance way. The un-kept and home handy man theme extended throughout the Cottage. Carpets were old but not cared for, basic old linen on the bed. Bathroom re-furbished and very small and... More

We stayed for two nights recently a very good breakfast and made to feel welcome. We would stay again and we also could stay with the dog. Do go to the Lion and Unicorn for a meal. Very close drive into Stirling.

John, the owner is so welcoming, friendly and very helpful. The room was awesome, very cosy and with a view of fields with cows and sheep grazing, it's like staying with relatives! The home made cooked breakfast was really nice and we thought it's really nice that all the guests in the cottage sat and had their breakfast on one... More
