About this property

  • Meadows Cottage is an extended stone-built cottage with accommodation on one level and views across the open fields of “Callander Meadows” and River Teith to Callander. The property is classed as an office and was fully renovated by the existing owner in the mid 1990s for that purpose. The property is now in need of full renovation and change of use back to residential. Internally there are good sized rooms and scope to create a very homely property. Surrounding the property are lawns bordered by a low stone wall with a woodland and attractive burn beyond. Available in addition is a paddock of up to 2 acres, immediately across from the cottage on the North side of road.
