The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region

Experience a region steeped in legend, folklore and history. The serene snow-capped peaks, glimmering lochs and sheltered forests of Loch Lomond, The Trossachs & The Forth Valley have inspired great heroes and artists alike. Today, find magnificent food and drink, animated city life and bustling creative towns and villages nestled alongside the tranquil setting of Scotland's first National Park.

This region covers Loch Lomond, Helensburgh and West Dunbartonshire in the west, the Trossachs and Breadalbane to the north, the city of Stirling, Strathallan and the Campsies in the middle, and Falkirk and Clackmannanshire to the east.

In Loch Lomond, The Trossachs & The Forth Valley you can climb high mountains and cruise deep lochs, relive the bravest battles and the greatest novels, all whilst keeping an eye out for the magnificent local wildlife.

Around 50 percent of Scotland's population is lucky enough to live within an hour's drive of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. The park is a beautiful space, simply for taking a walk, or you can enjoy other outdoor activities on the water and land.

Discover distinct arts and crafts in the small towns and villages, including the Alloa Maker's Village and other small gift shops.

Around Stirling you can find out some of the greatest and most important battle stories in Scotland's history as you explore the life of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce.

Spend a day looking for local wildlife at one of the centres, nature reserves or lochs or take part in local food and drink festivals to try local produce.

Stirling

96 Glenalva Cottage is situated in the small town of Bridge of Allan which is within a very close distance of Stirling Town Centre. Not only is Bridge of Allan a picturesque town which holds some of Scotland's most breath-taking scenery, with the Ochil Hills as a backdrop, it is also considered to be the home of Academic Excellence and therefore holds the magnificent campus of the University of Stirling which is a stone's throw away from the lodge. Not only is the campus excellent for sports, it is also top-notch for walking opportunities and entertainment facilities, with the MacRoberts Arts Centre situated on Campus.

Stirling town centre, which is only a twenty minute walk or five minute car journey away, is also a wonderful place for tourists to embrace; it has all the modern amenities which any tourist would expect in a busy town centre, but it also has the traditional aspects which the 'Key City of Scotland' should have. Considered to be the 'Key to Scotland' in medieval times, the City of Stirling - with it's castle and ramparts - is any tourists dream if they want to embrace Scottish Culture. The famous Wallace's Monument is also situated extremely close to the Lodge, along with Dumyat Hill.

Thank you very much for your review and I am delighted you and your family enjoyed the stay at Glenalva. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Since your stay we have had Wi-Fi installed in the property, sorry it wasn't available when you were there and I hope it didn't cause too many issues.

Kindest regards,
