Pippa and Robin Maclean offer a very warm welcome to bed and breakfast guests from all over the world at their home called Quarter, which is lovely Georgian country house located in the middle of Scotland just 10 minutes south of Stirling and with easy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth.
Quarter is reached from the road below by a 1/3 mile drive which passes through some of the 60 acres of parkland fields and woods that surround the house. Built in 1776 and described in the early 19th century as "an elegant modern mansion", Quarter is perfectly proportioned with a Tuscan portico and pediment above, set high on a hill surrounded by trees, shrubs, lawns and rhododendrons. The original Georgian interior woodwork, plaster cornices, window shutters and chimney-pieces are all preserved.
This is an ideal place to stay if you want easy and central access to both East and West coasts (from St Andrews to Inveraray and Argyll), an amazing concentration of historic houses, castle and gardens as well as the wilderness of the Highlands. All around there are plenty of golf courses (the "Open" at Loch Lomond is 60 minutes away), walking and biking (Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park) and even fishing and a riding school half a mile down the road.
