Set in 3 acres of gardens and with beautiful views of the valley, Shiel House is the perfect retreat.
This bespoke house was built by our family to provide an escape from the city at weekends and it has been furnished to provide a comfortable home from home. It would suit solo adventurers, couples, families (with kids), and big groups.
Only an hour's drive from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and St Andrews, it is also the ideal base for golfers, walkers and visitors to Scotland.
Shiel House sits in three acres of beautifully planted mature gardens, rich with rhododendrons and azaleas. There is a large well maintained lawn perfect for a family game of cricket or croquet, a Japanese inspired pond and a separate walled garden. The extensive gardens are provided with total privacy by the surrounding forest. The house is comfortably furnished as a family home and has a cosy lounge with a wood burning stove, TV and plenty of family board games. The kitchen is modern and well equipped with a range oven and table and chairs and there is a large conservatory with perfect, uninterrupted views down the valley towards Stirling and the Wallace monument.
Guests will have full access to the entire house, gardens and surrounding woodland.
Although I will not always personally be on hand to help at short notice, I will always make sure that you have the contact details for someone local that can assist you during your stay.
