The Beeches is one of these rare properties that enjoys the best of both worlds. It is located within one of the most prestigious addresses on the very fringe of the established residential village of Killearn and to its south western side it borders open countryside, woodlands and farmland, over which there are lovely views south to Dumgoyne and north to Ben Lomond and the hills beyond.
Killearn is on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park which offers beautiful walks, cycling and a variety of water sports.
Killearn is an extremely popular village with a real community feel and has village stores which easily cater for everyday needs and requirements. There are two well respected country/village pubs with restaurants, 2 cafes, one of which is the well known Three Sisters Bake, a number of boutique style specialist shops and Oakwood Garden Centre.

Stirling (circa 23 miles) has further leisure and professional services as well as the popular indoor shopping mall The Thistle Centre.
Glasgow is 15 miles to the south and is Scotland's largest city. The centre of Glasgow has numerous retail districts and is widely regarded as one of the UK's most fashionable and trend setting cities. There is a first class restaurant scene as well as theatres and an expanding professional and business district.
As with most parts of Scotland one is never too far from a golf course and The Beeches is no exception. The immediate area offers numerous park and heathland courses including Buchanan Castle Golf Course at Drymen which is widely regarded as one of the area's best parkland courses. Loch Lomond has the Carrick and Loch Lomond, both of which are popular with international golfers.
Other outdoor pursuits abound, with excellent low ground shooting on neighbouring estates and also some superb fishing in the area. The nearby Loch Lomond offers a variety of inland water sports, whilst there are marina and chandlery services at Rhu on the Firth of Clyde providing access to some of the most scenic coastal sailing in Great Britain.
