The Doocot is a delightful and secluded cottage, set in woodland and it's own gardens beside an 18th Century doocot. From here you can enjoy the quiet, peaceful surrounding countryside, play nine holes of golf on the local course at the end of the garden or perhaps at the five star Gleneagles courses nearby. There are stunning views across fields toward the Ochil Hills whether you are enjoying an evening glass of wine in the conservatory or breakfasting on the deck. After a busy day you could warm your toes beside the log burning stove while gazing out through the french windows or lie in the hammock and watch the sheep go by!

There is plenty to do and see in the area from fishing to skydiving … and further a field there are even more opportunities and amenities. We are, after all, only an hour by car from both Edinburgh and Glasgow...

It's clean, modern and very well equipped and with many personal extra touches from Hilary which we love. The quiet, private grounds are ideal for a very... more

This was our second visit in 5 months which says enough. The surrounding is stunning, quit, and very comfortable. Hilary & Bruce are very nice people and do every thing they can to make your stay successful. If you like golf there is a great 9 holes course on pitching wedge distance away from the Doocot. So do not hesitate... more

Those are such lovely things to say! Look forward to seeing you again soon ... Hilary more

Fresh veg from the owner's garden and freshly laid eggs from their hens were both nice perks! More generally, the Doocot is a lovely, peaceful place that's a perfect escape for couples. The Doocot is a short walk from the village of Dunning where the Kirkstyle Inn does tasty lunches. Dunning's local shop is well-stocked and near the village there... more
