Discover a hotel with all of the magic of a Scottish fairy tale when booking a stay at Gartmore House. This lovingly restored country mansion is bursting with character and nestled within 75 acres of private grounds. Guests are encouraged to enjoy a stroll down the hotel's many scenic paths and trails or visit the walled garden.
Perfectly positioned within an hour of both Glasgow and Edinburgh, the Gartmore House Hotel offers a gorgeous countryside retreat within easy driving distance of Scotland's liveliest cities. Head into the capital for a glimpse of great historical attractions or plan a shopping visit to remember in Glasgow. Alternatively, make the most of the hotel's tranquil Stirling location and spend your days exploring the beauty of the Trossachs. Plan a picnic at Loch Lomond, chill out on the pretty banks of the Lake of Menteith or text your climbing skills with a trip up Ben An.
After an adventurous day out, where better to relax than in the hotel's comfortable and fully stocked library. Pick up a tome and choose a plush chair with a lovely view of the terrace and look forward to a tranquil few hours. Or, if you're in the mood for conversation, head along to the Cedar Lounge where you'll find a cosy log fire burning during the winter and brilliant views of 20 miles of countryside (including the Wallace Monument and Lake of Mentieth) on brighter days.
When hunger strikes, you'll find there are two excellent dining rooms to choose from, both boasting lovingly prepared menus bursting with delicious dishes made from locally sourced produce. Allow yourself to be tempted by the selection of homebaking and enjoy lovely views as you dine. At bedtime, you'll be able to retire to your character-filled room – featuring either exquisite period details or fantastic, modern décor – and relax into your comfortable bed.
