Love, Love, Love!
This place was brilliant! To start with it was huge. We had a family of 5 and could have easily doubled that number comfortably. Lots of windows and light throughout. Apartment was very clean and well stocked with towels and kitchen needs etc... A huge plus was having a washer AND dryer! Had a separate freezer and second refrigerator at the base of the staircase. The living room was large and comfortable, also the WiFi and television set up was great.
This amazing apartment sits above the most precious pub by the same name. Filled with locals that were extremely friendly and welcoming. We never heard any noise upstairs from the pub but we did go down nightly! We were even allowed to bring our children in and they got to play pool and darts, they loved the pub too!
Another huge plus was location! It was easy to get good free parking on the street and you have everything you need within short walking distance. You simply must try the steak pie from the local butcher. This little town of Cambusbarron is within minutes of Stirling and numerous attractions but with all the quaintness of a small rural village.
We stayed 4 nights and could have stayed a month! We are so happy this was one of our last stays at the end of our month long adventure in Scotland! You know the saying...we saved the best for last.
Highly recommend this place and would return in a heartbeat
A home from home
Bob and Kristi and fantastic. The property is exactly how it is described. spacious homey and definitely right for families. The location is perfect close to all the major cities and minutes to the town center.
We absolutely recommend this property for families (especially those with larger groups).
Large, roomy, space for everyone and cozy. Clean and comfortable rooms. Perfect spot to stay when exploring the Stirling area.
Perfect location for exploring
Clean and tidy, spacious and well equipped. No hairdryers or irons provided. Fresh linen and towels. Great location and plenty of on road parking. Close to amenities and motorway links. Lovely view and walks in surrounding area.
Property and furnishing are a little tired although in keeping with the period decor. Helpful and friendly service from proprietor.
Great Apartment, Fantastic Location!!
We just completed a week long stay at this apartment and we highly recommend it for large or small groups. Great location for day trips to Edinburgh, Glasgow or surrounding area. Four bedrooms which easily sleep eight to ten people and well equipped with everything you need. A wonderful pub downstairs where you can enjoy the local ambiance (noise was never an issue). Convenience store across the street as well as a wonderful butcher with fantastic ready to cook meat pies! We had part of our group cancel but we intend to return and will definitely book this apartment again.
Spacious property with plenty of room. Elegant ceilings, log fire and big bedrooms.
Had a very nice stay over Christmas. Loved the flat. The Christmas tree was gorgeous. There was plenty of room around the table for Christmas Dinner for all nine of us and there was a huge oven and hob. Televisions in all the bedrooms too. Great for the kids. There was a play park a short walk along the road and Stirling Castle a short drive away - fairly expensive but worth a visit - a nice gift shop and cafe too. Beds were comfy and plenty of towels in the two bathrooms.The Forresters pub was welcoming and we saw Father Christmas there on Christmas Eve! We spent a couple of evenings there with prices very reasonable - kids as well. There is a shop across the road and a Co-op just down the hill if you need anything. Having lived in the Central Belt for 40 years until a few years ago it helped knowing the area, however, the new road layout for the Queensferry crossing was a bit confusing at first. Edinburgh was as always - good shops but busy and St. James Centre has been knocked down since we left. Thoroughly recommend this flat - best I have stayed in.
With its fantastic location you are only one mile from the Kings Park, hunting ground of Kings but now more often used for tennis, scatboording, kids adventure frames and home to Stirling Golf Club.
You are now only minutes from Stirling and the Thistle Center the Marches shopping centers the Albert Hall, the Tollbooth, the Old Town Jail, The Church Of The Holy Rude and Stirling Castle.
The old town, which is situated in the shadow of Stirling Castle, has a very medieval flair. Here you will find numerous old buildings as you make your way around the town. Quite a few of them have significant historical importance - while others are simply a marvel to look at. Here you can quite literally 'touch history'.
Of course, the main attraction in Stirling is Stirling Castle. The castle is built on an easy to defend hill and it over looks the River Forth so it has seen quite a lot of action. It was home to the Stuart monarchs for many years. Today it has been partially restored to its former splendor and you may take a tour where you will see quite realistic models of people working in the kitchens which is fun for adults and children alike.
Among other attractions is Argyll's Lodgings - a 17th century townhouse - and the ruin known as Mar's Wark. Not far from this you will find the Church of the Holyrood. A little further down the hill you will find the Old Town Jail which has been changed into a live show tourist attraction. Here you can see how people would have suffered in the harsh conditions of a Victorian reform prison. Right across the road you will find Tolbooth - the jail which preceded Old Town Jail and in which up to 25 prisoners were sometimes kept in a single cell. Today Tolbooth is a music and arts centre. You may also wish to visit the Smith Art Gallery and Museum which is entertaining for visitors of all ages.
These are just some of the sights worth seeing in Stirling. This is a place where you can quite literally be transported back in time without even using your imagination. Why not see for yourself?
Ten minutes drive or by regular bus service visit The Wallace Monument, the McRobert Centre, Stirling University with the Scottish Center for Sport and amazing swimming pool with Stirlings own new pool to open in 2009
Highly recommended the Safari Park at Blair Drummond or immediately behind Cambusbarron the North Third Trout Fisheries.
Stirling was described as the gate way to the Highlands now within five minutes drive you can be on a motorway straight to Glasgow or Edinburgh or be on the main routes north to Perth or Glen Coe and Fort William or east to St Andrews.

Only a short drive, will take you to many worthy tests such as Dunblane
New.Bridge of Allan Golf Course, set above this delightful town, offers a climb on several holes but the vista over the Ochil's is just a reward.
This is an area of golfing education and Stirling University even has its' own 9 hole golf course built beneath the inspiring edifice of the Wallace Monument.
For a golf outing with a difference, try the Brucefield Family Golf Centre near Bannockburn.
The Falkirk area is a distinctive golfing region in itself and offers a variety of venues.
One of the best courses in the area is undoubtedly Glenbervie, scene of several amateur championships, very much a fine parkland tract secluded with lots of trees and a tendency to undulation.
