Traditional cottage in the country in central Scotland.
Self-catering rental accommodation sleeping 5 to 6.
Balgonar is a small country estate and family-run farm set amongst the woods and fields and rolling hills a few miles north of the Firth of Forth in central Scotland. Owners Libby and George Elles used to live in this cottage which was originally built in Victorian times for the estate chaufeur.
It is now available for self catering as a holiday cottage - a secluded and tranquil place but incredibly central for exploring Central Scotland. The West coast, Glasgow, Edinburgh and St Andrews on the East coast are easily accessible, and Stirling which some say is the centre of Scotland is only 30 minutes away.
Children will love it here. The Elles have their own free range chickens, cattle, sheep and pigs, and can supply eggs, home-cured bacon and meat as well as fruit and vegetables from the walled garden in season.
A hundred yards away they have further self catering accommodation, a converted bothy which sleeps 2 to 4, so you can combine the two if you are a large family or party of friends. See Balgonar Bothy.
