This is a second home, used by our daughter whilst at University. It is comfortable, warm, well-equipped and in an excellent quiet location, close to Stirling Centre with views of the Castle and Wallace Monument. The house has main public room (bright), eating kitchen,toilet and utility room downstairs with door leading to small grassed garden and patio. Upstairs are two double bedrooms (one with en-suite and dressing room) , one single bedroom and the main bathroom. Upstairs bathrooms are equipped with power showers.
The house has central heating but you wouldn't need it in the summer apart from for hot water. Wifi, BT Vision (similar to Cable TV). Regular bus service will take you in to either Stirling town or Bridge of Allan. Bridge of Allan is itself an attractive little town full of independent retailers, cafes and restaurants. It is a 15-20 minute walk from the house.
Stirling - known as the Gateway to the Highlands - is a Central Scotland University town about an hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow Airports. It has a small town feel about it. Small town centre with a few good pubs and restaurants, major national stores. It is of course famous for its Castle (open to visitors) and the Battle of Bannockburn which was fought nearby.
The world famous Gleagles Hotel and Golf Course (hosting the Ryder Cup in 2014 - is a short 20 minute drive away) and Muirfield (British Open 2013) is just over an hour away on the east side of Edinburgh.
Stirling is very convenient for Edinburgh (castle, Royal Mile, Festival) and Glasgow (shops, restaurants, theatres) by rail (both about 40 minutes) or road(40 miles) and a two/three-hour drive will take you to most parts of Scotland - the West Coast, St Andrews and Inverness. A car would not be essential for travel in Central Scotland but would be advised for further travel.
Scotland has many distilleries producing whisky - the nearest to Stirling is probably Glengoyne but the Famous Grouse Visitor Centre is also close by. A drive up to Speyside (three hours) would take you into the heart of Malt Whisky Country as well as some great golf courses - Nairn, Castle Stuart with Royal Dornoch just a bit further. Nairn is where our main family house is located and a short stay there could be negotiated.
