From the owner

This well furnished, cosy 'home from home' is ideal for a peaceful getaway in a peaceful town in the heart of Scotland nestling at the foot of the scenic Ochil Hills. With two bedrooms, spacious living area, well equipped kitchen and well appointed bathroom, it provides an excellent base for exploring the activities and history of Stirlingshire and Clackmannanshire.

The apartment has Fibre Broadband Wi-Fi, TV, DVD and CD player , a Wii and XBox (with games) and an excellent variety of books and DVDs. Fully equipped kitchen with Senseo coffee machine and all the cooking equipment you could ever need and a dishwasher.. We also have a washing machine and tumble dryer. For business travellers we also have a desk and work area within the main living space.

For keen walkers the Ochil Hills provide breath-taking views and for golfers the apartment is ideally located for access to many golf courses. The apartment is only 45 minutes from both Edinburgh and Glasgow making it an ideal base to visit these cities too. It is located only 10 minutes drive from Stirling University and only 30 minutes from Gleneagles.

The central location within the town provides easy access to a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants as well as a banks, post office and other important facilities. The town has no train station but a regular bus service takes you directly to Stirling Railway Station in less than 30 minutes. We welcome pets and their owners.

We have secured the Visit Scotland 'Good to go' kitemark which demonstrates that we are a safe and secure accommodation provider following the COVID-19 crisis. We have done all we can to ensure that your stay is safe, secure and comfortable.
