Malcolm's reviewsAs a host (11)
“Nous avons passé 2 semaines agréables à Stirling. La maison est située dans un quartier calme de la ville, à proximité du centre ville et de la gare (20 minutes à pied). Depuis Stirling, nous avons pu explorer Édimbourg et Glasgow, facilement accessibles par le train, et découvrir en voiture une partie de ce beau pays qu\'est l\'Ecosse, qui offre une multitude de sites touristiques très intéressants et des paysages magnifiques ! Malcolm est un homme charmant et très arrangeant.”
“Esta casa está situada en el centro de Escocia por lo que te permite desplazarte sin esfuerzo hasta las ciudades de Edimburgo, Glasgow, coger un ferry para ir a Arran...La casa tiene muchas comodidades tanto para estar en verano como en invierno y tiene un gran atractivo para los niños: una caseta donde pueden jugar a billar, dardos, ping-pong. Tanto mis hijos como nosotros nos lo pasamos estupendamente bien. Como valor añadido indicar que tuvimos que marchar antes de terminar nuestras vacaciones por una tema familiar y Malcom, el propietario se portó fantásticamente bien con nosotros. Conservamos un muy agradable recuerdo de nuestro intercambio. Helena”
“We spent one week in Malcolm’s nice, cozy home in Stirling. He is the best host you’ll ever meet and we also had the pleasure of meeting his family who were equally lovely. When our fly was cancelled (we arrived two day later) Malcolm was really helpful and a potentially stressful situation was handled smoothly thanks to him. Stirling is not only beautiful but also essential to comprehend the History of Scotland. The house has a perfect location very close to Edinburg and Glasgow, ideal as well for excursions all around the west side of the country in case you rent a car, which I strongly recommend because there’s so much to see. Malcolm has plenty of information in his house and your problem will probably choose where to go! If you want to get to experience beautiful Scotland and its great people, this is you swap!”
“We spent an amazing week in Malcom's house. He was very friendly and we had an excellent communication with him during our stay. The house has a great games room, where my children enjoyed a lot playing pool and table tennis. The house is only 15 minutes to the city center. We absolutely recommend his property.”
“Nous avons eu le plaisir de séjourner chez Malcom en avril 2018. Sa maison, très confortable, fut parfaite pour rayonner dans le sud de l'Ecosse pour découvrir Edimbourg, Glasgow mais aussi les Trossachs et le loch Lomond, Saint Andrews, les abbayes et bien sûr le magnifique château de Stirling. Nous avons vraiment apprécié cette chaleureuse maison, douillette et joliment décorée. Malcom fut un hôte charmant, accueillant et attentionné et fut aussi un invité remarquable. Excellent échange, merci infiniment Malcom !!! We had the pleasure of staying at Malcolm's home in April 2018. His house is very comfortable and was perfect to radiate in the south of Scotland to discover Edinburgh, Glasgow but also the Trossachs and Loch Lomond, Saint Andrews, the abbeys and of course the magnificent castle of Stirling. We enjoyed this warmly, cozy and nicely decorated house. Malcolm was a charming, welcoming and attentive host and was also a fantastic guest. A very great Exchange, thank you so much Malcom !!! ”
“We had a fantastic week in Stirling. Very clean house near to town centre with a great smart TV and excellent games room complete with pool/snooker, table tennis, darts and a running machine. Some beautiful places to visit all within about a 30 minute radius. Really enjoyed our stay and would heartily recommend this swap.”
“Being in Scotland before, I knew that Stirling was strategically located in the hearth of Scotland, so it makes it so easy going in or out to explore the highlands, Glasgow, Edinburgh, in 5/10 minutes you are out of the city, imposible to do in one of the other bigger cities. Malcom's place is super comfy, with everything you need to spend 7/15 days out and about. 2 bedrooms 2 full washrooms, a Man's cave with ping pong, Billiards and darts (like it? or more British than that?!?!) We are planning on more exchanges, since he loved Valencia for a week of relax, and my daughter and son would love to come to Stirling for an introduction to the Scottish life. ”
“Stirling est une ville animée et très agréable au centre de l\'Ecosse, à mi distance entre Edimburg et Glasgow, donc idéalement située tant pour visiter ces deux villes que pour découvrir les loch ou la mer du nord. Saint Andrew et Oban nous ont séduits. La maison est douillette et fonctionnelle où nous avons aimé nos soirée billard acharnées. N\'hésitez pas à confier votre propriété à Malcolm, il vous la rendra toute propre. Il s\'est aussi gentiment occupé de mes plantes et de mes poissons rouges. Un seul regret: malgré tous les châteaux que nous avons visités, nous n\'avons croisé aucun fantôme !”
“Malcolm is a very nice person and in Scotland he was the best of hosts. His house is in a quiet area and is spacious and cozy. As a guest he was understanding, quiet and left the house in a better condition than it was. We´d love to exchange with him any time.”
“We spent 10 days in Malcom's house in Stirling. His house is comfortable, well situated in the lovely city of Stirling and also very close to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Highlands. We had friendly contacts with Malcom before and during the exchange and we are looking forward to go back to Scotland to continue to explore this beautiful country.”
Where is it?
There is off road parking in the driveway, although the street is free to park.
The property is in a quiet part of Stirling, located within a 15 minute walk to the centre of the historic city and 25 minutes walk to "Stirling Castle". "The Wallace Monument" and "Auld Stirling Bridge" made famous by "Braveheart" are also worth a visit. Our city offers easy access to Edinburgh (55 min) , Glasgow (35 min)and Perth in around 30 minutes by car or train. The tourist attraction of Edinburgh Castle and Edinburgh Festival (August)are recommended. Blairdrummond Safari Park can be reached within 15 minutes by car. M&D's with its roller coasters and rides can be reached within 30 minutes by car. The train station is a 15 minute walk if you are looking to go into Edinburgh, Glasgow etc to an evening show, trains run until around midnight.
There is a lovely Pub / Restaurant 2 minutes walk from my home. The food is recommended. The Linden Inn.
Stirling also has a state of the art sports centre and good tennis and golf clubs.
Doune Castle that is 8 miles from Stirling was made famous as the film venue of Monty Python and the Holy Grail and has been used for filming of Game of Thrones and Outlander.
