Luxury Holiday Home in the Heart of Scotland
The Willows is located only 2 miles from the town of Dollar and undoubtedly benefits from being in one of the most stunning locations in Central Scotland.
Nestled in ancient woodland, the town is situated in a valley and gateway to the Ochil Hills, which offers both exhilarating peaks and stunning gorges to hill walkers, ramblers and cyclists. These range from leisurely to rather more challenging routes, including the Ben Cleuch and Dollar Glen circulars.
Within the affluent town of Dollar there are a good selection of high end shops including an excellent delicatessen, post office, hairdressers, chemist, newsagent, coffee shops, boutiques and museum. We would definitely recommend the King’s Seat which has a superb selection of real ales and The Vanilla Pod bistro for a meal at the end of the day’s activities. The town sits is in the shadows of the historic Castle Campbell or Castle “Gloom” and is also home to one of Scotland’s most prestigious schools, Dollar Academy.
The town is within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh, Glasgow (both with large international airports), Stirling and Perth. The Willows can arrange transportation services from local airports, please highlight your requirements when booking. Alternatively the property has a large drive that can comfortably accommodate four large vehicles.
The Willows allows you the chance to a vacation rental in the highly regarded Dollarbeg Estate, comprising only 30 houses within the exclusive grounds of Dollarbeg Castle. In the background of the property the Ochil Hills await to be explored and share their breath taking views. Walkers can enjoy the lower level glens or traverse the spine of the Ochil’s, which stretches for 25 miles and includes many peaks over 2000ft.
Scotland is the home of golf and The Willows luxury holiday rental is situated in a golden triangle of courses, with Gleneagles only a few miles away and the Old Course at St. Andrews & Carnoustie both less than an hour’s drive. It makes the ideal base for golfing holidays in Scotland and many other outdoor pursuits. The property is available as Ryder Cup 2014 accommodation this September.
