Bluestone Church itself is as pretty as a picture; this historic and charming little chapel building (circa 1856) sits in an elevated position in private gardens enjoying wonderful scenic views over the River Earn and Loch Earn to the magestic high hills and forests surrounding. Make no mistake our beautiful loch-side village of St. Fillans is set amongst some of the country's most deeply dramatic and atmospheric Scottish scenery imaginable. Enjoying the idyllic scenic beauty of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park this is the geographical centre of Scotland, just the perfect base to enjoy Scotland's renowned food, drink and hospitality as well as its splendid outdoor activities and many fascinating visitor attractions. St Fillans sits comfortably along the banks of beautiful ...Bluestone Church itself is as pretty as a picture; this historic and charming little chapel building (circa 1856) sits in an elevated position in private gardens enjoying wonderful scenic views over the River Earn and Loch Earn to the magestic high hills and forests surrounding. Make no mistake our beautiful loch-side village of St. Fillans is set amongst some of the country's most deeply dramatic and atmospheric Scottish scenery imaginable. Enjoying the idyllic scenic beauty of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park this is the geographical centre of Scotland, just the perfect base to enjoy Scotland's renowned food, drink and hospitality as well as its splendid outdoor activities and many fascinating visitor attractions. St Fillans sits comfortably along the banks of beautiful Loch Earn which you can easily access for picnics, water-sports, fishing, bird spotting and many wonderful walks. Wildlife sightings are plentiful: Salmon, Trout, Red Deer, Ospreys, Kites, Buzzards, Wild Goats, Red Squirrels to name a few. Perfect location for touring, situated, near to Stirling, Crieff and Gleneagles as well as central between Glasgow to the west and Edinburgh in the East, both major cities can be reached in just over an hour's drive. Now to the accommodation: cleverly converted Bluestone Church provides the perfect romantic Scottish hideaway with home-from-home comforts, cozy interiors, a log burner, luxuriously comfortable beds, open-plan kitchen/dining and sun room and superbly equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a relaxing holiday from day one. We offer modern, comfortable 4 star quality self-catering accommodation with private gardens and parking ideally suited for 2 to 4 guests (for guest comfort the house is no-smoking and no-pets) Your comfort is extremely important to me. The beds are are really very comfortable (wider and longer than most) arranged either as super king-size or separated into twins. You choose how we prepare the beds specifically to your own bedding preference. All our white linens are 100% high quality cottton and luxury bedding toppings are your choice; super-soft sumptious goose-down, or hypo-allergenic cotton options are all available and towels and dressing gowns are provided. The front bedroom has an en-suite bath, basin & toilet. The rear bedroom has a power shower adjacent with a further toilet and basin downstairs. Hairdryers are provided. The very well equipped kitchen has possibly every appliance you might need, with plenty of crockery, cutlery, glassware, and cooking utensils including 'sharp' knives. We provide a starter pack of bacon, eggs, bread, milk, & butter (or vegetarian options), and a welcome tea tray awaits your arrival. For the convenience of our guests we have a 'ready steady cook' kitchen with most general basic grocery items available, so whatever time you arrive at the cottage you will be able to make a simple meal. The cottage has a large flat screen 40' TV with Sky Entertainments and Sports package, Unlimited Wi-Fi, and MP3 player. There are TV's with DVD in both bedrooms and in the Kitchen/Diner, and plentiful books, games, CD's and DVD's. We have an 'ex-directory number' house telephone which is available for your use if required. Rental rates are all inclusive of changeover house-keeping, electricity, logs for the fire, starter pack and tea tray. Also available for you: picnic chairs, portable barbecue, flasks, rucksacks, picnic basket and blankets, umbrellas, walking sticks, golf clubs, binoculars, shopping bags etc. The village shop is just next door and is ideal for most basic groceries, newspapers, ice creams, alcohol and fishing licences. Best of all they have a cute little coffee shop with excellent coffees, the perfectly convenient place where owner Liam will make-to-order a lovely fresh home-cooked breakfast. St. Fillans has a nine hole golf course which is a true delight and amazingly the green fee works out at around just £1 per hole. Just a short drive from the house it is situated in a stunning valley between the high hills with great views and also offers delicious home-made clubhouse catering. For fishermen, fishing licences can be purchased from the Village Shop and simply walk across the foot-bridge to find a nice beach on the other side of the Loch from where you can fish. If total relaxation is your thing, take the picnic chairs down to one of the little beaches around the Loch, enjoy a picnic at the water's edge, enjoy the lovely views, so beautiful through all the different seasons. My pledge to my guests is that I will do everything possible to ensure you have an enjoyable and comfortable stay at Bluestone Church so that when you return home you feel well looked after and have experienced the best of Scottish hospitality. I look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you to this lovely place soon. With all good wishes Grace More

About the neighbourhood
The area is full of romantic castles and dramatic scenery, a great place to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life. Situated on Loch Earn there are wonderful walks, or simply take your picnic down to the banks of the beautiful loch and relax. Scotland is well known for its New Year celebrations. Hogmanay street parties are commonplace, and if you come to stay you could visit the neighbouring village of Comrie and watch the ancient ritual of 12 strong men in kilts parading around the village carrying burning cabers to ward off any ill spirits, accompanied by pipe bands in full highland dress, with revellers dancing in the streets. When the bells ring out at midnight the flaming torches are hurled off the bridge and into the River Earn to extinguish the old year, and to bring in the New Year.
How to get there
We will be delighted to provide route guidance for you once you have booked, and we know where you will be coming from. When we send you the Entry Details we will give simple route instructions, if you would like further help please just ask. If you are using Satellite Navigation, our postal code is PH6 2ND, and we are right next door to the Village Shop. Bluestone Church is in the village of St. Fillans, which can be regarded as the geographical centre of Scotland, and just 12 miles west of the town of Crieff, and 35 miles north west of the city of Stirling. The route to Bluestone Church will by-pass the city of Stirling, after which Stirling Castle will be easily seen on the right, high up on an hill, and further on ahead to the right you will see the renowned Wallace's Monument ...
