Both Glasgow and Edinburgh offer a number of highly regarded private schools, with the highly reputable schools of Beaconhurst, Morrisons Academy and Dollar Academy all within 30 miles.

Hopetoun is conveniently located within close distance to main road links throughout the country with the M9 approximately 11 miles to the east, providing dual carriageways and motorways to the east of Scotland. The A84 and A811 are both also close by and provide access to the north and west of the country.

This part of the historic county of Stirlingshire offers a diverse range of recreational activities. There are 18 hole golf courses to be found in the nearby villages of Aberfoyle and Callander with further excellent courses found at Balfron, Buchanan Castle and Strathendrick near Drymen. Renowned trout fly fishing can be found on the stunning Lake of Menteith with its own ancient monastery. The scenic Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park is only 20 minutes drive to the west and offers world famous scenery with a plethora of recreational and leisure opportunities, including a wide range of water sports.

The National Park offers world renowned access to beautiful locations within Scotland which contains a number of Munroes to include Ben Lomond.

Hopetoun once formed part of the “Blairquhoille” Estate which included a Victorian mansion house, built in 1852 by the Grahams which was served by Hopetoun and at that time was used as the Coach House. The Estate was subsequently acquired in 1890 by George Crabbie of Crabbie’s Green Ginger Wine fame. There is a Lime Walk which sits to the south west of Hopetoun which runs through the Blairhoyle Estate gardens which is believed to have been a training route of the famous Scottish athlete, and international rugby player Eric Liddell in the early 20th Century when he was a regular guest at Blairhoyle as a friend of the Crabbie Family. The whole house in more recent times was used during World War II as soldiers’ barracks before being renovated 25 years ago by the current owners to form three individual dwellings.

Hopetoun comprises of a traditional U-shaped stone built building which was tastefully converted 25 years ago to form three dwellings with two courtyard areas one being partially covered, accompanied by a range of outbuildings and large area of garden grounds all within a private yet very accessible position close to local settlements and within commuting distance of Stirling. Each of the dwellings presents traditional accommodation, but with a contemporary family feel. The property has been carefully designed to maximise the living space available within every room.
