We hired this studio flat via "http://www.uniquescotland.com"
They specialise in self catering cottages and flats throughout Scotland. We have used them before and they are always very helpful and friendly.
We chose this studio flat because we wanted to be near the Trossachs National Park. It was a one room flat overlooking a river, we knew it was isolated. We had to go down a gravel track to get to it. The flat was over two garages from the house owner (his house was joined to the flat although we never saw or heard them).
What we overlooked was that the bed was it fact a bed sofa but it was not a very big problem. The flat was well equipped - although (as a previous renter remarked in the guest book) there was no wardrobe only a hanging rack for your clothes. The main problem we had was that the shower was either boiling hot or icy cold or nothing at all - hope it is soon repaired! Tall people (such as Koos) can have problems with the sloping ceiling in the bathroom and kitchen area.
Having said that we found it a great little flat for what we wanted and in a very busy tourist area the price was right. The price of course here is for 7 nights.
Charming and clean, the bedroom cosy, the bathroom spotless, the breakfast superb, and the garden lovely. Joan, our host was very welcoming and helpful too. Argyll House is ideally located, with a view of the wallace monument from our bedroom and a bus ride to the castle, jail and restaurants. Loved the hearty breakfast and the long chat with her and would definitely recommend Argyll House if you plan to visit Stirling!
During the summer, Stirling University makes several types of accommodation available, suitable for groups and solo travellers. Stirling Uni is in a beautiful parkland campus location, about 3 miles from Stirling (with frequent public transport). The campus is centred around a loch, and also has an arts centre/cinema, golf course and 50m swimming pool. Many summer school classes, mainly on Scottish themes (and some academic classes) are run.
Has to be one of the most beautiful campus settings in Britain, even if, being built in the sixties, there is a preponderance of concrete in the actual buildings. You can walk from the campus into the Ochil Hills, and the Wallace Monument is next door.
The view of the Ochil hills taken from our caravan site outside Alva - a few miles from Stirling.
