Guestbook comments from the owner

"Charming, peaceful apartment"



With my sister and with her friends we've spent a beautiful week in Scotland at Glenava Cottage. The apartment is in an excellent location. We were with car and we could easily get to everywhere and you can park your car in the street, but having a car is not essential due to the good public transport system.

At the arrival we've got a welcome pack from the owner; a letter, a wine and short bread of course :) The apartment was very comfy for 4 adults and had a peaceful atmosphere.

Unfortunately we have not enough time to have a look around in Bridge of Allan, so we could not try any of the restaurants. If you prefer to cook at home you can easily do it; there is a groceries almost next to the cottage, and the kitchen is well equipped.

I would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a good week in Scotland in a beautiful environment.



"Excellent base for touring and site seeing"



We would just like to say that the cottage was everything that we expected and more. It was very clean and the goodies that had been left for us were much appreciated, along with the flowers which were a very nice touch.

The cottage was a perfect base to come back to and relax after site seeing in the area and there is a great deal to do in the area.

We would definitely stay there again and would recommend the cottage to family and friends, thank you we have come back from our holiday very relaxed.

Unique homely cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming property tucked away off the main road in Bridge of Allan. Very comfy Cottage with plenty of space for four, equipped with everything you might need. The garden wasn’t quite at its best being October but i still managed to enjoy time sat on the decking during the unusually warm weather.

The location is excellent for touring the area, however we just needed to be close to family in Dunblane which is only five minutes away by car.

My only concern would be the gates leading to the property (4 in total). Three were covered in rough chicken wire to keep the dog in and these were owned by the downstairs neighbour. These were difficult for my 80year old mum to manage especially in the dark; torch needed and the main front gate being the most difficult to open properly. We were lucky enough to be shown how by the resident of the house next door.

That said, it was a very enjoyable stay, lots of amenities in Bridge of Allan and Catherine was very welcoming and the flowers and wine were a lovely touch.

Beautiful little cottage in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this lovely little cottage was most enjoyable, it had everything we needed. The cottage was clean and cosy and there was a small beautiful garden so perfect to sit out when the sun was shinning with our two labrador dogs. There is a co-op and a tesco met very close by and the train station five mins walk away and a dog friendly pub just by the railway station that made our dogs very welcome, lots of lovely walks and places to visit close by. Thank you for everything Catherine we hope to return in the near future.

Location

Travel:

Bridge of Allan train station is less that a mile walk to the property, therefore a car is not essential. There is also a bus stop outside the property. Bridge of Allan is approximately 45 minutes - 1hr from Edinburgh and Glasgow airport.

Further Details:

96 Glenalva Cottage is situated in the small town of Bridge of Allan which is within a very close distance of Stirling Town Centre. Not only is Bridge of Allan a picturesque town which holds some of Scotland's most breath-taking scenery, with the Ochil Hills as a backdrop, it is also considered to be the home of Academic Excellence and therefore holds the magnificent campus of the University of Stirling which is a stone's throw away from the lodge. Not only is the campus excellent for sports, it is also top-notch for walking opportunities and entertainment facilities, with the MacRoberts Arts Centre situated on Campus.

Bridge of Allan is a gorgeous village and has an array of specialist shops, perfect for a little holiday shopping. For more practical needs it also hosts a Tesco irect coop, butchers and bakers. There are also many eateries close by for you to enjoy and relax in.

Stirling town centre, which is only a twenty minute walk or five minute car journey away, is also a wonderful place for tourists to embrace; it has all the modern amenities which any tourist would expect in a busy town centre, but it also has the traditional aspects which the 'Key City of Scotland' should have. Considered to be the 'Key to Scotland' in medieval times, the City of Stirling - with it's castle and ramparts - is any tourists dream if they want to embrace Scottish Culture. The famous Wallace's Monument is also situated extremely close to the Lodge, along with Dumyat Hill.

Experience a region steeped in legend, folklore and history. Find magnificent food and drink, animated city life and bustling creative towns and villages nestled alongside the tranquil setting of Scotland's first National Park.

Around Stirling you can find out some of the greatest battle stories in Scotland's history as you explore the life of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce.

There really is something for everyone!
