Explore around Stirling

Around Stirling there is a string of scenic towns and villages, winding rivers and rolling hills. It’s fair to say you will feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Excellent train and bus links take the stress out of exploring and there’s always something remarkable to see and do.

Set on the outskirts of Stirling is the historic spa town of Bridge of Allan – hosting superb range of boutique, shops and cafes and even a Scottish Brewhouse. A good selection of boutique hotels and guesthouses make this a popular spot for many visitors. The stunning campus of the University of Stirling is located between Bridge of Allan and Stirling. The famous ‘Darn Walk’ between Bridge off Allan and Dunblane is featured in the adventure novel ‘Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson.

North of Stirling is Scotland’s first National Park – few words can capture the natural beauty on display. This is a perfect destination for cyclists and mountain bikers. The Steamship Cruise on Loch Katrine is an absolute must.
