The property is accessed up a long driveway, with ample parking in front of the house, surrounded by stunning countryside and with a communal lawn to enjoy.

The living/dining room offers an alternate spot to enjoy meals together, as well as ample seating to relax onto, while enjoying the view of the surrounding grounds, with a quirky curved space in the corner, surrounded by windows, where you can sit and enjoy a cup of tea or a spot of lunch whilst enjoying looking out onto the garden. Also on the ground floor is a convenient powder room with two toilet cubicles and two basins. Heading up the grand staircase to the first floor, you will find six generously-sized double bedrooms, most of which have their own feature fireplace, and all of which are bright and airy and have lots of storage space for your belongings and are spread out along two corridors that are accessed up three small steps. You’ll be spoilt for choice upstairs not only for sleeping arrangements, but with bathrooms – there is one shared by two of the six bedrooms, which has a stunning Jacuzzi bath and a separate shower cubicle, as well as a family bathroom with a shower over bath. On this floor, there is additional socialising space in the snug area with seating, where you can sit peacefully with a good book or enjoy watching TV with the rest of the group. Buchlyvie lies on the outskirts of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and offers a pub and restaurant, as well as access to the nearby Flanders Moss nature reserve, an important wildlife habitat formed over 8000 years ago, Strongend mountain, which is the highest peak of the Fintry Hills and offers some breath-taking scenery at the summit, while the hills themselves offer several scenic walking routes to enjoy. Head into the national park and explore the Lochs on foot, bicycle or by boat, the most famous of which is Loch Lomond, known for its legendary monster thought to inhabit its waters!
