Stirling and the surrounding area are steeped in history.

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. Located within an hour's drive of Glasgow and Edinburgh International airports, Stirling has excellent motorway connections to the north and south.
Golf being available at every turn: Kings Park's course in Stirling and at least another five within 30 minutes drive. Slightly further afield are the world famous Gleneagles and St Andrew's Old Course.
