Tipperdarroch is a charming residential farm situated in an outstanding rural position, with a wonderful outlook over the surrounding Stirlingshire countryside. The small village of Arnprior is only half a mile from the farm and has a nursery school. The popular village of Kippen (3 miles) offers an excellent range of local amenities including a primary school, a convenience store, a post office, a delicatessen, two gastro pubs, a tennis club and a playgroup. The historic city of Stirling (about 12 miles) offers a full range of amenities including shopping, leisure and business facilities with
regular mainline rail connections to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Glasgow, Scotland's largest city is only 28 miles away and Edinburgh, Scotland's capital, is only about an hour's drive away.
Balfron (8 miles) has a highly regarded state secondary school, whilst independent private schooling can be found at Beaconhurst in Bridge of Allan (15 miles) or Dollar Academy (26 miles), as well as in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perthshire. Tipperdarroch Farm is located in close proximity to the
excellent transport infrastructure of Central Scotland, with the M9/M80 motorway system accessible within about 12 miles. Glasgow Airport (34 miles) and Edinburgh Airport (45 miles) are both easily reached and offer a wide range of domestic and international flights.
Sitting in the heart of the historic county of Stirlingshire, the local area offers a wide range of
cultural and leisure opportunities. There are excellent golf courses at Callander and Stirling, whilst the world famous courses at Loch Lomond and Gleneagles are within easy driving distance. The scenic Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park is only a short drive to the west and offers world famous scenery with a plethora of recreation and leisure opportunities, including water sports.
The surrounding hills of the Trossachs and the Campsie Fells, are extremely popular with hill walkers
and climbers and the area also offers excellent opportunities for mountain biking, sailing, pony
trekking, shooting and fishing. The sale of Tipperdarroch Farm offers purchasers an
extremely rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional residential farm in this area, either as a whole or in up to four lots.
The farm, which is bounded to the north by the River Forth and to the south by the pretty Arngibbon Burn, is extremely private with several attractive walks and rides. The woodlands have some wonderful oak specimens and an abundance of wildlife has been spotted on the farm, including pine martens, otters, roe deer, peregrines, ospreys and red squirrels. The layout of the farm, with its topography and interspersed woodland, lends itself to a small family shoot. There is also an established flight pond. In recent years a significant number of improvements have been undertaken to ensure the farm is kept in good heart, including drainage, fencing, liming, wood
thinning, hedge planting and re-seeding. The current farming enterprise comprises a flock of up
to 250 ewes with lambs at foot, and a private equestrian operation including a small thoroughbred
breeding enterprise. Around 60 or 70 acres of hay or haylage are cut annually. The farm would also lend itself to a commercial livery operation or a beef enterprise. All fields are easily accessible and serviced by either mains or natural fed water sources. The land has been classed as 3 and 4 by the James Hutton Institute (formerly the Macaulay institute for Soil Research).
