Great location, communicative owners, clean!

  • 5 of 5

Great location for day trips around the region! Near stores, quick walk to a park, easy parking, and the pub downstairs is great (very little pub noise travels up on most nights).

We had a group of ten (including 4 kids) and fit comfortably! Housekeepers do a nice job of cleaning, so we arrived to a comfy house with fresh flowers. So great!

Fantastic stay in Stirling

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with two families through Scotland and we stayed at this facility for a week. The apartment is a fantastic set up, well set up kitchen, dining room, living room, and bedrooms. The unit was spotless and the host or one of his colleagues checked in to ensure we had what we needed regularly. Location wise for us it was perfect, minutes to downtown, groceries a block away, 30 mins to Glasgow and 45 mins to Edinburgh by train or by car with lots to see in between. We also had day trips to Gleneagles, St. Andrews and the Stirling Castle. Top it off with a great pub downstairs and welcoming locals for your daily nightcap and you are good to go!

One of the favorite parts of our family trip!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough great things about this place. We arrived early to drop off our luggage and Kirstie & Dawn were there to greet us. They were so nice! The apartment is in a perfect location. There was plenty of room for us 8 adults to spread out. Bob was quick to answer any questions I had. The local butcher has a big selection of meats and delicious Scottish meat pies. There are a couple of small grocery stores within walking distance. The larger stores are minutes away by car. The walk to downtown Stirling is about 1.5 miles. The pub downstairs is great and the local residents we met were awesome. Kirstie & Dawn even had a birthday cake for our son's girlfriend. We loved spending our evenings hanging out in the pub conversing with Kirstie and the rest of the gang. Thursday night is Quiz Night so brush up on your UK trivia! It was difficult to leave because we had such a great time. We hope to come back and spend more time in Cambusbarron.

Seven Smiles for Cambusbarron!

  • 5 of 5

We--6 adults + 1 child--stayed in this spacious apartment over the Forester's Pub for 4 nights in order to avoid a city stay, yet be able to take day trips exploring places of interest in the Stirling/Edinburgh area. The village of Cambusbarron could not be more delightful and friendly. The apartment met our needs spectacularly: large bedrooms, TVs everywhere with great channel choices, good Wifi, fairly well stocked standard pantry items, nice linen. Very clean. Groceries nearby and even a playground. There were a few glitches for these Americans figuring out European appliances; however, our contact in the Pub was very helpful and things were sorted quickly. By the way, everything WORKED--washer, dryer, range, oven...even the toaster, which not only toasted the bread, but left the image of the Scottish flag to give you a morning smile. We would return and definitely recommend this property.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this apartment! For a party of 6, there was PLENTY of room! It has 4 full bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a full kitchen, dining and living room. Just as the name says - it’s a very large place! Yes, it’s located above a local pub, but the locals were AMAZING! They were very helpful to show us where to park, gave suggestions of where to go/what to see & do. I even got educated on the location - Gillies Hill & the battle of 1314! Bob was very quick to respond with any questions & I can’t thank him & the patrons downstairs for their kindness & help. We toured many places in mid Scotland from this location and fell into comfortable beds each night. Thank you for the opportunity to stay here, it will be remembered for a lifetime.

Perfect spot for our family trip.

  • 5 of 5

What a treat to end our two-week vacation of Iceland, Ireland and Scotland in this apartment. The central location made it easy for us to do several day trips to see the sights. Bob has to be the best VRBO owner ever. Leading up to our stay, communication was answered quickly and we easily added an additional day to our stay. The apartment was very comfortable with the right amount of character, and staying above the pub was an additional perk.

We would consider staying here again, if ever we venture back to Scotland.

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.
