Stonefield is situated in rural Stirlingshire to the east of Aberfoyle, close to the Lake of Menteith. The area was established as a burgh of barony, then named simply Port of Menteith, in 1457 by King James III of Scotland. 15 miles from Stirling, 30 miles from Glasgow and just over 50 miles from central Edinburgh, Stonefield Cottage offers a superb rural location, yet for the commuter is within easy reach of most areas of commerce within central Scotland.
In the summer months a ferry runs from Port of Menteith to the island of Inchmahome,site of the Historic Scotland-maintained Inchmahome Priory. The village is home to a fishing club and is the starting point for anglers on the Lake of Menteith. Nick Nairn's cookery school is based at Loch End, just south of Port of Menteith at the south-east corner of the Lake. In the winter months if the lake freezes over, the Grand Match or Bonspiel is held drawing curlers from all over the world.
Stonefield is a charming detached traditional stone-built cottage, with a white washed render under a slate roof. The property is accessed from a private road, shared with one other property. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a unique property, which enjoys an elevated position with wonderful views over the surrounding landscape, in a most peaceful and private setting. The garden grounds are extensive and include a walled garden, home to a mature orchard. There is an original stone cottage, now used as a storage barn which presents an excellent development opportunity for a holiday let, a home office/studio or ancillary guest accommodation to the main house, (subject to obtaining the necessary consents). The woodland grounds lead to a burn with countryside walks beyond into the village of Aberfoyle.
A deceptively large property, internally, the accommodation is in good order and has been tastefully restored throughout. The cottage has numerous windows flooding all rooms with natural light and enjoying views of the beautiful surrounding landscape. The flexible layout allows for some reception rooms to be adapted as bedrooms and vice versa. Of particular note is the main reception room with exposed beams, stone open fireplace, with dramatic views to the south.
From Stirling take the A84 heading as if to Crianlarich, bear left on to the A873. Proceed through Thornhill and Port of Menteith, follow around the north west side of the Lake of Menteith and Stonefield Cottage is marked by a sign on your right hand side. Proceed up the track and Stonefield is the 1st cottage on your right.
