Warm, welcoming, great location and size.

  • 5 of 5

Foresters was a great place to stay, we would stay there again! The flat was large, had modern bathrooms and a lovely lounge.

It was an easy, and pretty, walk into Stirling, but the street in Cambusbarron also had convenience stores, a butcher and a sandwich shop.

The pub downstairs was fun and the people very welcoming. It was enjoyable to go down for a whiskey at night.

We'd recommend staying at Foresters very highly.

Very clean, neat atmosphere, fantastic location; the people made it our favorite spot in Scotland

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 stayed here for 5 nights, and this became our favorite place to stay in our time in Scotland (18 days total).

The apartment was cozy, very clean, and comfortable. With four rooms and two bathrooms, a cozy kitchen and dining room, and an elaborate and large living room, it was perfect for our group. It's main selling point, however, was it's location. It's located right above a pub, meaning enjoying some Scottish company was just down the stairs. We didn't have any issues with sound coming through the floor, and a few our company stayed almost every night down in the pub pretty late chatting with the locals. The apartment itself was only one part of the experience though.

While the apartment itself was perfect and just what we needed, the true magic of our stay came down to the people. Lisa, one of the pub worker's and Bob, the proprietor of the apartment and the pub below, were more than welcoming, and happy to assist us in anything we needed. Lisa helped us call taxi's, place our orders at the butcher's shop just down the street, gave directions, etc. Bob also hosted a quiz night one of the nights at the pub, and we had a blast joining in and enjoying some friendly banter with those we were competing against.

All in all, staying at this location was more than just a place to sleep and then head out the next morning. It truly enhanced our experience in Stirling, and was the best avenue for us to chat, joke with, and get to know some of the locals and what they enjoyed (and didn't enjoy) about living in Stirling. This apartment was our connection point to the candid and humorous Scottish culture Scotland is so well known for, and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay, Bob. Our entire company would do it again in a heartbeat.

The property was very comfortable for the stay in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

Bob was very helpful, even though we reached around mid night on the first day. He called to check and gave directions and very welcoming. He provided with lots of information about things to do and see in Stirling.

The house was very spacious with two large bathrooms, large living room with TV and plenty of DVDs, books etc for kids to spend relaxing time once back in the house after spending days out.

There was a ATM in the shop next to the house for free cash withdrawal, the was quite useful which was open quite late as well.

I would surely recommend to anyone who is visiting Scotland because the location is quite convenient to drive up to Loch Ness, lots of good castles and distilleries around too.

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.

Other Activities: Fantastic central location to paraglide in Scotland, happy to advise on best sites

Golf: Scotland boasts over 550 courses of high quality and great diversity with St Andrews, Muirfield, Carnoustie, Royal Troon , Turnberry and Glen Eagles all within easy reach.

If you like history with your golfin break, then Stirling is the place to go. Set below the castle parapets is an excellent 18 hole course.

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.

Ski: Glen Coe Mountain Resort 72 mile

Glen Shee 75 miles

Anoch Mor 120 miles
