The castle is set in grounds and looks fantastic upon arrival, with the gravel approach and beautiful lawns, but that is only the beginning of a great experience!.
Getting past the video door system with a key fob, you enter a marbled hallway with beautiful high ceilings and chandeliers and immediately you are impressed. Appartment 5 is on the first floor, so you ascend the marble stairs with huge windows that overlook the grounds.
The appartment is spacious, with high airy ceilings and very well appointed in a modern look, complete with dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, coffe-maker in the kitchen, LCD television and DVD in the lounge and bedrooms with built in wardrobes and spectacular views onto the grounds and hills beyond. The free wifi for the kids was also of great benefit, enabled them to stay in touch - Facebook :-)
Supplied were all linen, twoels and to our surpise, even cleaning materials for washing up and dishwasher tablets - the owners have covered everything, even down to the small necessites that you find in good hotel bathrooms - liquid hand soap, moisturiser etc.
This is a beautiful place to stay near Stirling and you feel "Lord of the Manor" whilst residing here. Would highly recommend this as a base to stay and explore the lovely lowlands of Scotland - Edingburgh, Stirling, Loch Lomond etc.
Would like to thank the owners for a wonderful week spent here in August 2012 - very memorable
