Dunblane is an ancient, small cathedral city set in attractive countryside six miles to the north of Stirling. The town is well situated for both Edinburgh and Glasgow and all the other major towns of central Scotland. The town has a good selection of local shops, a Marks & Spencer Simply Food store and a Tesco supermarket. Dunblane also offers good recreational facilities including tennis, squash and bowling clubs and a golf club. Gleneagles Hotel with its leisure club and golf courses is only 13 miles away.

Dunblane has three primary schools and a high school, all of which have good reputations. There are a number of private schools which cater for day pupils nearby, including Beaconhurst Grange at Bridge of Allan, Morrison's Academy at Crieff and Dollar Academy. There are excellent boarding schools within Perthshire including Ardvreck (preparatory), Glenalmond, Strathallan and Kilgraston (for girls). St Leonards in Fife and all the Edinburgh schools including Fettes and Loretto are also within easy reach.

Dunblane is well placed, with good road and rail connections to all the major towns of central Scotland. The pivot of the motorway network is only eight miles to the south, with the M9 and M80 giving quick access to Edinburgh and Glasgow respectively. The A9 is dual carriageway all the way to Perth. Both Edinburgh and Glasgow Airports are easily accessible. In addition Dunblane has a railway station on the main line from London to Inverness with commuter services to both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
