Buchlyvie is a delightful rural village with a real sense of community. The village has local shops and services that easily cater for everyday needs and requirements.
There is a local primary school and for secondary education, the children of the district attend Balfron High School which has an enviable record of academic achievement in the state sector.
Glasgow and Perthshire have a range of independent schools for example Glasgow Academy and High School in the west and Strathallan and Dollar Academy to the east.
The historic town of Stirling is about 14 miles to the east and has a fuller range of professional, academic, leisure and retail facilities which include the Thistle Centre shopping mall.
The surrounding countryside is renowned for its natural scenic beauty and the chance that it offers to participate in outdoor and field sports as well as the convenient access to Glasgow, Stirling, Edinburgh and the national motorway network.
The A811 offers good access to Glasgow (25 miles) and Stirling (14 miles) and to Glasgow International airport which is to the west of the city and offers an increasing range of flights to UK, European and North American destinations.
Loch Lomond is the centrepiece of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park and is an area of natural and often dramatic natural scenic beauty. On all sides of the loch there are some of the most scenic and challenging walks and hill climbs in Scotland.
The loch offers inland sailing and boating and water sports opportunities. Fishing is possible by permit on the loch and some of the surrounding rivers.
Some of the local estates can, by prior arrangement, offer stalking, grouse and low ground pheasant shooting.
As with most parts of Scotland, one is never too far from a quality golf course and Knockinshannoch is no exception with courses at Balfron, Buchanan Castle and Aberfoyle.
Coastal sailing is available on the Firth of Clyde with marina and chandlery services available at Rhu (25 miles).
From Stirling take the A811 west to Buchlyvie. About 0.75 miles before the village (and before the long lay by) turn right at a cul de sac sign. Proceed down this single track lane for about 1 mile and after passing Gartentruach Farm, take the next driveway on the right hand side to find Knockinshannoch on the left hand side at the end of the private road.
From Glasgow take the A81 north towards Aberfoyle. At Ballat Crossroads turn right onto the A811. Continue on the A811 for about 3.7 miles to reach Buchlyvie. Proceed through Buchlyvie and on leaving the village (after the long lay by on the left) turn left at the cul de sac sign and follow direction above."
