About Sally Russell

I have lived in Bridge of Allan most of my life, only leaving for University, some travel and then a couple of years up north when first married. I have now brought my own four children up in the village and think that as a base it is hard to beat. We spend most of our spare time watching our sons play rugby all over Scotland and further afield.

Sally Russell purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Sally Russell chose Scotland

The apartment started as an interesting project to do up and sell on but as we worked on it we realised just how much we liked it and decided to keep it and rent it out as a holiday property so that we can sometimes use it ourselves.

Awesome place want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a short visit to Scotland. It is in an ideal location almost 1/2 between Glasgow & Edinburgh, Also close to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. You can walk to a Tesco Express, family bakery and pubs/restaurants. The accomodations were spacious and comfortable. There is a big front lawn and during our stay the weather was beautiful so we were able to go out and sit on the lawn and enjoy the sunshine. We wish we could have stayed longer, and I definitely want to go back! The owner/manager was very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend it.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I took the flat at One Stanley House to visit my daughter at the University of Stirling. The location was perfect, on a quiet street, near the university, not far from a Tesco Express and a nice warm pub. We loved the charm and warmth of the apartment. But the best thing about it was the little touches Sally left for us like fresh milk in the fridge, flowers on the mantle and a special trip she made to deliver us firewood in case we wanted to start up the fireplace. Friendly, helpful and respectful of our privacy our host was the best!

Lovely home, excellent hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a lovely two weeks with my family at No. 1 Stanley House. It is a wonderful accommodation - spacious, clean, bright and well-equipped. It is in an ideal location with easy access to Stirling, main street Bridge of Allan and surrounding areas. Sally was a most helpful, accommodating host - was very quick to respond to any questions I had and even left a basket of goodies upon arrival. I would recommend it to anyone and hope to make another visit myself.

Beautiful oasis

  • 5 of 5

We have spent the last two weeks touring Scotland and No. 1 Stanley House was our little oasis. Our generous host left us flowers and treats that further enhanced our stay. A short walk to the many nearby excellent pubs and restaurants. A great central location in Scotland and easy access to the trains and motorways that allowed us to explore much of Scotland. Highly recommend it!

A little gem in Bridge of Allan

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! This little gem is located within a few minutes walk to the University of Stirling and all the amenities offered in the Bridge of Allan. The heating is on a timer for which we were very thankful after spending the day away and coming in to a lovely warm house. The living room is really large with comfortable seating and a stack of DVD's and home magazines. Not to forget the basket of logs and open fire. The two bedrooms have plenty of storage and VERY comfortable beds. Actually, everything was just wonderful, and there is nothing I would change. We were welcomed by a fridge full of bread, butter, eggs, milk, chocolate, fruit, bottle of bubbly and tea! The owner had left a note explaining the house and the code for the wifi etc. and the best places to go along with her phone number should we need it. We tried out a nearby resturant called Meadow Park which is within easy walking distance which we enjoyed. I would most definitely recommend this property and will certainly be back in 2014.
