About the home
The Courtyard is a bright, spacious self-catering property which can comfortably sleep and dine eight people. It is located in the prestigious Kings Park area of Stirling, a city at the heart of Scotland.
Recently refurbished and modernised, The Courtyard shows a sharp contrast from the external appearance of a sandstone villa built nearly 200 years ago, to that of a fully modernised minimalist modern interior. The property exclusively occupies the entire garden floor of this beautiful Victorian villa and the garden offers privacy and tranquillity; guests can enjoy the garden with the use of extensive garden furniture, BBQ equipment and outdoor games.
Accommodation comprises of; a bright open plan kitchen complete with fully fitted modern appliances; a utility room with dishwasher, washing machine & tumble drier; an open plan living and dining area with ample seating for 8 round the main table and sleeping arrangements for the same number.

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 Courtyard 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 Tollbooth, 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.
