About the home
Situated in one of Stirling’s most picturesque Victorian suburbs amid broad tree lined avenues with views to the Old Town skyline, Castleview – a Victorian Villa – was recently refurbished, but still retains its original, stylish character.
Castleview is a large, 6 bedroom family friendly house. Three of the bedrooms are en-suite with an additional two shared bathrooms and separate downstairs WC. The original billiard room provides a great room equipped with billiard table, board games, books and a separate downstairs television room has Freeview TV and a selection of DVDs and videos. The rear south facing garden contains a climbing frame with swings, various outdoor toys, a kickabout area, and a large south facing sun terrace with BBQ and garden furniture
Castleview has a calm, quiet feel, but yet it is only five minutes from Stirling town centre, which is within 45 minutes of the amenities of both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The Central Scotland / Strathclyde / Stirling County region
Stirling does not stand alone; other areas of historic interest are on the doorstep: just a five minute's walk away to the charming village and local pubs of Cambusbarron and five minutes in the opposite direction for Cambuskenneth and its famous Abbey. Wallace’s Monument is a 2 min drive; on the way, stop off and visit the Old Stirling Bridge or the site of the famous Battle of Bannockburn.
The surrounding countryside is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts: walking, cycling and paragliding are all on offer on the nearby Ochil Hills. Slightly further away are The Trossachs, Callander, Loch Lomond National Park, Glasgow and Edinburgh providing, therefore, the ideal central touring base for your holiday.
The Stirling / Kings Park, Stirling area
Castleview is at the very heart of Stirling City centre; a two minute walk to all the attractions within the historic City: the magnificent Castle and rich Scottish heritage centre, the Old City Jail, the Tolbooth, a modern shopping centre, small quaint arcades and several supermarkets.
The historical Bannockburn Heritage Centre is only a 20-minute walk from the city centre and there is also a good selection of both modern and traditional pubs and restaurants in the area. Nick Nairn’s famous cookery school is also a mere 20 minute drive away in nearby Port of Menteith.
Golf being available at every turn: Kings Park’s own course and at least another five within Falkirk district, a 15 min drive away. Slightly further afield are the world famous Gleneagles and St Andrew’s Old Course.
Transport within the area offers excellent links to all areas; Edinburgh and Glasgow (airports) are within one hour’s drive. Stirling also has a good bus/rail network and motorways heading both North, further through Scotland, and South towards England and Wales.
