Lovely, well equipped and comfortable pet friendly flat in Alva. We had a great stay and would recommend this apartment for anyone visiting the 'Hillfoots' and Stirling area. Excellent food on offer at No. 5 Inn, good curry house and co-op within 50 metres.

Management response:

Many thanks for your great review, really appreciated and you are spot on about the No 5 Inn. Lawrence
