General

  • Cosy shepherd's hut in a quiet location with spectacular views
  • Within 15 minutes' drive of Stirling Castle and the Trossachs
  • Pay once for unlimited Blair Drummond Safari Park access during stay

The Bankhead Shepherd's Huts team are rightly proud of this Stirlingshire site. With a very special setting in central Scotland, this cosy hut accommodation has access to all sorts of scenery, from the mighty walls of Stirling Castle to the lochs and mountains of the Trossachs, either of which can be reached in a quick quarter of an hour's drive.

Views from the accommodation look out towards the Gargunnock Hills, and the site as a whole is a haven for wildlife: look out for hares, red squirrels or deer grazing in the field to the front.

More animals are just around the corner, as Bankhead Shepherd's Huts is right beside Blair Drummond Safari Park; if you buy tickets to visit the park during your time here, you'll benefit from unlimited entry for the rest of your stay.

The hut sleeps two adults and two children in comfy beds (a kingsize double and a bunk above it) and comes with a well-appointed living space, kitchen and bathroom with a WC and shower. To keep you cosy, a woodburning stove and firepit are provided, and there's outdoor furniture too for open-air relaxing.

The nearest town is Doune, a mile and a half away, where there are local shops and a castle, while an award-winning farm shop can be reached within walking distance. The historic city of Stirling (15 minutes' drive) is home to iconic landmarks like its vast medieval castle and the towering Wallace Monument, but there are also amenities in town like supermarkets, petrol stations and a cinema. On top of that, Scotland's biggest cities, Glasgow and Edinburgh, can both be reached by road in well under an hour.

    We absolutely loved it!! Peaceful, luxurious and complete, very tranquil and quiet, beautiful setting, beautiful little hut. Lovely views and so comfortable. It had every you need and more. Nearby is an excellent farm shop with breakfast and lunch facilities. Also great products like pies and pastries to prepare in the hut. Had some small issues with the pressure of the electric shower a few times but nothing to spoil the fun. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return. It was excellent!

    Getting there was a breeze as you're off the motorway and on a straight road to the location so no long windy roads.

    Lovely location and the view you have is not done justice by the pics here. Hut is larger than you'd imagine as well! Great facilities and bedding & towels, along with working TV and Wifi, within the self contained hut. We had a lovely 2 night stay with our small wuffer who also loved her stay as much as we did.

    Local shops are not far and if you're looking for a lovely (GF) breakfast or lunch then the dog friendly Blair Drummond Smiddy cafe is excellent.

    The peace and quiet was sublime and will be back again for sure.

    Disliked: 

    We did arrive at tail end of first 2022 extreme heatwave so do take fans as can get hot inside.

    Not a dislike at all as it was exceptionally hot on the day of our arrival (30c+)!

    Beautiful location, really quiet and secluded with a great view but walkable to the wonderful Smiddy cafe, and a short drive to lots of interesting locations. The hut has all mod cons so it’s really comfortable.

    Disliked: 

    The shower was a bit temperamental. The WiFi was hit and miss but it was good enough for the essentials like checking the weather forecast.

    The hut is beautifully appointed, with everything you need to make a simple meal, light the log burner, and have a fab trip!

    Spotlessly clean, with toiletries, towels, bedding and good coffee - what's not to like?!

    Our weather wasn't great, but the hut is super cosy and warm, with lots to do nearby even if it's a bit rainy.

    We loved the location, views and layout of the hut! The hut was very clean and had everything needed to cater for a family. The kids loved the bunk beds, being able to roam free in the field and being able to watch a film at the end of a long day outside!

    The bed was very comfy, we loved the log burning fire which was perfect for drying out our boots.

    The shepherd hut was in an amazing location even though it felt so remote it was a 10 min drive from Stirling. It was also really close to Loch Lomond, where there was lots of family bike rides and walks.

    We had an amazing Autumnal family get away.
