About our home
Our home at Museum Hall is located in Bridge of Allan, an affluent and desirable Victorian spa town located two miles from the city of Stirling, Scotland. It is an idyllic setting on the local high street, overlooking lush landscaped gardens.
Museum Hall is steeped in history and culture. Built by the trustees of John Macfarlane in 1887, originally as the Macfarlane Museum and Art Gallery, it later became a concert hall, which played host to the Beatles in 1963. Across the past four years it has been converted into 14 luxury homes, which opened doors in January 2010.
The 2,000sq ft duplex apartment with mezzanine level is located on the ground floor at the front of the building. Our attention to detail and sophisticated finish recently featured in ‘Home & Interiors Scotland’ magazine. We would describe the feel of our tranquil home as open & spacious with warmth & ambience.

Walks in the park
