About this property

  • Collymoon House is a detached rural property with magnificent views, spacious, bright accommodation and tremendous versatility.

It occupies a beautiful rural setting with fine views over the surrounding countryside, to the south over the Gargunnock Hills and the Campsie Fells and to the west over Ben Lomond. The property is easily accessible, with the motorway network only 14 miles to the east providing swift access to both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Both Glasgow and Edinburgh airports offer regular services to London and other UK cities as well as services to a number of international destinations.
