Situated within a short drive of Edinburgh, Glasgow, the historic towns of Stirling and Dunblane, Gleneagles and the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Broich House sits at the of a 450 acre private country estate, and surrounded with spectacular views over the miles of surrounding countryside.  The picturesque village of Kippen is within walking distance. The perfect retreat for a family holiday or reunion, or a corporate retreat and, for golfers, Gleneagles is only a 30 minute drive.

Broich house’s striking exterior is complemented with an extremely comfortable and stylish interior, a spectacular mix of traditional and contemporary, and light filled spacious rooms. With 7 individually designed en-suite bedrooms for up to 14 guests, Broich House offers privacy and luxury in equal measures. The house and its beautiful gardens serve as a heavenly escape from everyday life as an enjoyable and tranquil retreat for all ages.

Guests staying at the house are provided with a range of indoor and outdoor activities.

The four acres of magnificent gardens are a joy to behold.  Multiple pathways framed by majestic and rare trees provide shelter to the plant collections of its former owner Sir Peter Hutchison, a well-respected plant collector.  In May and early June, the Glen at Broich blossoms with rhododendrons and other shrubs collected by Sir Peter on his hair-raising and dangerous trips to the Himalayas.  These woodland paths lead to the haven of Broich’s spectacular enclosed Victorian Walled Garden. Its yew hedges, herbaceous borders and water features form a magnificent space.

The Victorian Walled Garden is a wonderful place to enjoy a picnic or a barbecue with outdoor dining for 14 guests and soft seating covered by an oak gazebo, alongside a hot tub, outdoor shower, and kitchen.  A fabulous spot for a game of croquet!

For a more relaxed stay, guests can put their feet up by the log fire in the cosy library surrounded by leather-bound books and stocked with board games. Those looking for some friendly competition can take themselves to the games room to play table tennis or enjoy a game of darts.

The Orangery, which seats 14, is a beautiful spot to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or a summer supper.

After working up an appetite exploring what the house and gardens have to offer, guests can feast around the large Victorian dining room table which comfortably seats 14 people in an atmosphere of bygone splendour.

Short breaks are available upon request.

Broich House is self-catered, however a chef can be arranged on request.

Housekeeping is available by separate arrangement.

Well behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement only.

We say...

Activities

Activities
Although Broich House is only a 15-minute walk from the village of Kippen which has two gastropubs, a grocery store, a delicatessen and two farm shops, Broich has so much more to offer. We can arrange a day up the hill with clay pigeon shooting and lunch with spectacular views from ‘The Bothy’, cycling through forest tracks, sightseeing, beautiful lochside walks and don’t forget Scotland is the home of whisky and golf.

Golf
With 18-hole courses at Aberfoyle, St Fillans, Killin, Stirling, Bridge of Allan, Alva, Alloa and Dollar there’s plenty of destinations within a short drive for golfers. Gleneagles the luxury hotel, spa, and golfing destination, famous throughout the world, is only a short drive away.

Shooting
We can offer a tailored day’s clay pigeon shooting up on the hill behind Broich House. An exciting drive up the hair-pin bends to the moor in 4x4s and a competitive morning’s clay pigeon shooting is followed up by a feast in ‘the bothy’ with stunning views across the Trossachs.

History
Within a 15-minute drive of Broich is one of Scotland’s grandest castles. Stirling Castle’s history goes back to William Wallace’s victory over the English in 1297. Also on your doorstep are The National Wallace Monument and some of Scotland’s famous battle sites.

Walking
Whether you’re simply wanting to stretch your legs around Broich’s gardens and parkland, or you fancy climbing 879 metres up Ben Ledi, you’ll be spoilt for choice! The Trossachs are a playground on your doorstep.

Cycling
Stirling’s Active Travel Hub outlines 16 local cycle routes. Country roads surrounding Kippen lead to wonderful destinations like The Lake of Menteith, Loch Venachar and the Duke’s Pass. You can hire bikes from Wheels Cycling Centre and they’ll deliver them to Broich.

Eating Out
The Cross Keys and the Inn at Kippen are two family-friendly, dog-friendly gastropubs with delicious food and a warm reception within a 15 minute walk of Broich House. For those preferring coffee cake over cask beer there’s also the RhubarbLime Coffee Shop.

Farm Shops
