About Anne Pollock

I have lived in Stirling for 30 years now and found myself in a position to purchase a 2nd property a couple of years ago, when one became available in Stirlings old town I jumped at the chance as I have always loved this area due to the beautiful scenery and history that bathes it. I spent some time refurbishing the apartment to its former glory and now enjoy letting others experience it.

Anne Pollock purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Anne Pollock chose Scotland

The apartment is located in a great area hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Stirling City Centre, but only a few streets away if you disire a livelier atmosphere. The apartment itself dates back to the 1800s and offers a cosy and modern living experience

What makes this apartment unique

If you want to experience Stirling at its best this is the ideal apartment, suiting families and couples alike with family pets always being welcome

Notes:
From this hill top location you have an amazing view out over Stirling and beyond. The Wallace Monument stands proudly and is also well worth a visit. Delve into the history behind William Wallace, Robert the Bruce – King of Scotland and Robert Roy MacGregor. It is only a short drive to the Ochil Hills to enjoy a walk in the countryside or go a little further to the explore the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. The Trossachs is an amazing area for outdoor enthusiasts as there are endless miles of forest roads and trails to explore, both walking and cycling. There are many activities for every age and interest including the Blair Drummond Safari Park, the Falkirk Wheel, Knockhill Race Course, numerous golf courses and lochs for fishing or water sports. Stirling has good motorway links to explore further afield – Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Fife can all be easily reached (each less than a hour’s drive away).

Spacious, comfortable and full of character. A great central location.

  • 4 of 5

A great location for the two of us to use as a base but there was plenty of room for four. It was only a short walk from a corner shop, cafe and there were plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from. We travelled into Edinburgh twice for the Fringe Festival, once by train and once on the park and ride. There was lots to see and do in and around Stirling. We drove out to see the Falkirk Wheel which was fascinating, the Kelpies and Bannockburn battlefield. We also walked in the Trossachs and visited Loch Lomond. The first morning there was not hot water but the owner came straight out and sorted it for us (and brought us a can opener!) There was plenty of hot water and a great shower and bath. The bed was comfortable and free parking was a short walk away; less than 5 minutes walk. My only grumble was that the fridge was quite small for the two of us let alone four, and was difficult to fit bottles of wine and milk in.

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was all we could have wanted and more. Very well equiped and spotless. The location was ideal and right next to Stirling Castle. God grant that I should return to Scotland, I wouldcertainly stay there again. I would also recommend it to other adventure seekers!

Departed immediately, we found Fleas!

  • 1 of 5

We booked this apartment based on the good reviews. When we arrived the apartment was fine although I immediately vacuumed the bedrooms because the carpets were not clean at all. I moved the double bed and found a considerable amount of dirt, a toothpaste lid, and dust. There was a smashed glass beside lamp which I felt was very dangerous as I had a two year old child with me.

I sat down on the couch and the next thing there are two fleas on my legs (I was wearing shorts). I grabbed my child (stripped her clothes from her and put them in a plastic bag) and left the apartment straight away.

I called the owner who eventually agreed to meet me at the apartment 2 hours later. She claims there are no fleas and that the apartment was “deep cleaned” by a professional company. Rubbish!!! After some discussion she agrees to refund half my money. We are very disappointed.

When we return home that evening (after a long journey), I find a flea crawling in the plastic bag with my child's clothes. I videoed it and sent this evidence to the owner. No response.

I follow up with the owner 2 days later and she tells me that she could have rented to someone else and that I likely brought the fleas with me!!!

I am disgusted by her refusal to take responsibility for this issue. We would never recommend booking this apartment.
