Bridge of Allan is one of Stirlingshire's hidden gems. This historic spa town has a thriving centre with a good range of shops, cafes and restaurants.

Bridge of Allan has numerous sporting facilities including a golf course, tennis club and this property benefits from its proximity to Stirling University, which has beautiful grounds and many sporting facilities open to the public, including a near Olympic size swimming pool and indoor and outdoor tennis courts. The newly refurbished library is also open to the public and the MacRobert Centre provides a wide range of live performances while the Film Theatre screens both mainstream and specialist films. There are also a number of other excellent local primary and secondary state schools nearby. Private schools in the area include Dollar Academy, Strathallan, Morrison's Academy, Glenalmond and Kilgraston (girls only).
Stirling, three miles to the south, is the major town of central Scotland. Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument rise high above the town and are evocative of its historic past. The modern day town provides a full range of shops and services including several superstores.
Bridge of Allan is well placed for both road and rail connections to all the major towns of central Scotland. The connection between the M9 (south) and A9 (north) is only three miles to the west giving quick access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth. Both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports are in easy reach and Bridge of Allan has a railway station with commuter services to both cities.
The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park lies just to the west with its wealth of outdoor activities including climbing, hill walking, water sports, fishing, shooting and stalking. The internationally renowned Gleneagles Hotel with its leisure club and golf courses is only 17 miles away.
Logie House is a traditional stone built manse dating from 1803, when it was built as the manse to nearby Logie Kirk.
