The B&B trades all year and its quality is reflected in the number of awards it currently holds such as being rated 5 out of 5 on trip advisor.
Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website
It enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its stunning location in the heart of Stirling, being close to all local attractions and transport links.
Craigard offers excellent accommodation for both guests and owners.

Stirling is a city in central Scotland. The city is clustered around a large fortress and medieval old town. Stirling is the administrative centre for the Stirling council area. The city is located several miles to the west of the mouth of the River Forth. Historically it was strategically important as the "Gateway to the Highlands", with its position near the Highland Boundary Fault between the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands and has been described as the brooch which clasps the Highlands and the Lowlands together.
Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling contains the Great Hall and the Renaissance Palace within Stirling Castle. Stirling also has its medieval parish church, the Church of the Holy Rude, where King James VI was crowned King of Scots on 29 July 1567.
Stirling is a centre for local government, higher education, retail, and industry.
In 2002, as part of Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee, Stirling was granted city status.
Craigard sits conveniently within a residential area, on Causewayhead Road close to the National Wallace Monument, University of Stirling and Business Park.
