Our philosophy is to seize the day. Set on a plot of 4 acres (natural and cultivated garden), the home is a listed building, a part of it built in the early 1800s. However the interiors and facilities are all modern, cosy, comfortable and elegant. Two bedrooms are available to be let out - one with twin beds and one with a double bed. Bathroom with shower and half tub is independent, 4 steps away from both the bedrooms. The surroundings are peaceful, but several villages, towns and cities are easily accessible through public and private transport. By car or bus one can reach Auchterarder, Crieff, and Dunblane in 12-15 mins, Comrie and Bridge of Allan in 20 , Muthil and Braco in 5 , Gleneagles golf resort in 15, Perth and Stirling in 30, Edinburgh in 50 and Glasgow in 1hour. The nearest train stations are Dunblane, Bridge of Allan and Gleaneagles. The kitchen is kept warm with an Aga, and has large windows for natural light and - which also facilitate watching bird activity. The living room has a fireplace and two pianos, a decent collection of books and a picturesque view of Ochil hills. Frequent visitors to the garden are roedeer, red squirrels and local birds. Depending on the time of the year, the garden has a different look and color. There is a greenhouse too for growing veggies, and the peach tree gives good fruit once a year. The host is happy to share all the produce, and restless green thumbs will have plenty to engage in, if they wish. It is difficult to say that this home, its surroundings and location are suited for guests looking for just one type of experience. According to those who have seen it, it is perfect for those who wish to be in the midst of nature, and yet have easy jaunts into villages towns and cities for whenever socialisation, work, shopping, restaurants or soirees call. Within the home there is an option of enjoying solitude (leave-me-alone signals are picked quickly and respected) or having engaging talks about wildlife environment medicine politics travels with the host - on occasions that suit both the parties. It is ideal for those wanting to immerse themselves in reading or music or meditations, periods of introspection, walks n treks, OR wanting a quiet place for studies or research, OR simply enjoy leisure and healthy living. Working people may also find respite from the daily grind and still have an easy access to offices in nearby cities through a short daily commute. My friend from India who lives here for extended periods likes to cook healthy vegetarian gluten free Indian food and a little Italian too. There is no bar for someone to buy and eat meat. Worth a visit, so pick up your bags and treat yourself. Carpe diem ! PS : To those interested, the host can send a list of the archaelogical sites , lochs and walks close to the home.
