It is hard to express just how much we really enjoyed staying with Laura at her Castlecroft guest house. From the moment we arrived way too early on a day that she was busily moving almost a full house out to when we picked up our bags for a late train both she and her guest house were gracious to the Nth degree.

The location is lovely and we were quickly guided to both the Upper and Lower Back Walks for easy trips into the old town and onwards to the castle. Eventually we took both and enjoyed both (watch out for animal droppings!) and easily found our way to and from town even with the rain coming down. While we were at the guest house, the beautiful lounge was the perfect place to curl up with a book and watch the storms roll across the sky through the huge picture windows. The rooms were warm, spacious, and well-appointed. Breakfast was a delight even though she was a bit short staffed that morning. When we were ready for next adventures, Laura was quick to call us a taxi. Food recommendations in town were perfect.

If you are hesitant about haggis, hesitate no longer! Try it here at Castlecroft -- she gets it specially from a small producer in Linlithgow -- and you'll be an instant convert!

Those with scent sensitivity may want the heads up that the potpourri here is fragrant and floral, and used a bit more lavishly than might be elsewhere. For me it added to the ambiance and beauty but it crossed my mind that it would have bothered my sister. Just something to be aware of.

In all it was a beautiful stay despite the weather and I truly hope to return one day to this marvelous guest house.

Castlecroft is a really excellent B&B - from very friendly welcome in the spacious and comfortable guests' lounge to the spotlessly clean and tidy room and bathroom with everything that you might need to hand, including fast and free wi-fi and a computer available if you do not have your own.
A wide-ranging breakfast menu is available with everything very well cooked and presented - and with the bonus of home-made bread - everything contributes to making your stay a comfortable home-from-home.
And all this for a very low price - easily worth half as much again.

Laura's honestly and friendliness totally showed in our email correspondence! She kindly told us the double room we asked for is small and recommend a better room with patio for us, at the same price and without the need of a credit card for confirmation (quite rare these days). When we finally arrive, the cheerful and hospitable Laura and Isabel, the well maintained house, the beautiful ground and the scenic view are just perfect combination. Our room on the ground floor is the best - very clean, bright, spacious, gracefully decorated, top with a colorful and blooming garden. The cookies & chocolates provided with the tea sets are perfect nightcap.

The famous lounge is truly comfortable with great panoramic view of Stirling. Here, Laura patiently walked us through the map of Stirling, drawing 2 routes to the town centre: 1 up the hill between the B&B and Castle; 1 along the wall at the foot of the Castle. She has also compiled a thick folder with all the restaurants menu - impressive! We tried both routes and the restaurant (The Kitchen) recommended. All wonderful and enjoyable. We used the hill route to walk to town centre and the other back. Spectacular sunset view with many birds chirping, rabbits hopping and cows mooing along the way.

Breakfast: Portions are huge. All local and fresh produce with home-made bread, fruits, cereals, yoghurts, porridge and cook-as-ordered Scottish breakfast. Loved the haggis and mushrooms but everything else is delicious too. A good start for our walk up hill to tour the Castle. It's very nice of Laura to let us keep the room and car till we returned around noon.

As listed in the Castlecroft website and mentioned by others in TA, GPS may not lead you directly to Castlecroft at the very end of your journey due to road diversion. Just lookout for the row of white houses when you are at the roundabout and turn into the road leading towards the row of white houses.

Regrettably, we didn't spend enough time in our room and Castlecroft, as we didn't expect so much to do in Stirling with Laura's recommendation. Laura deserved to be the ambassador of Stirling, and Castlecroft deserved to be a Travellers' Choice Winner!

We've recently stayed in several B&Bs around Scotland and this is by far the loveliest place we stayed at, as well as representing the best value for money. Laura and her mum are wonderful, very friendly and hopsitable and we enjoyed chatting with them. The room was lovely, very clean with everything you need including a great selection of drinks and tasty biscuits. We followed Laura's recommendation to go to Henderson's for dinner and weren't disappointed, we also went up to the grave yards and saw an amazing sunset over the Trossachs.

Breakfast was so nice I ate everything, she asked about dietary requirements so everything was cooked perfectly and fresh.

It can be a bit tricky finding the B&B if you rely on Stanav as there are some canges which some systems haven't picked up on, so I would recommend using a good old fashioned map. It's ideally located beneath the castle though with a great walk into town (with plenty of wildlife to keep you entertained).

If you are ever in Stirling I would recommend staying at the Castle Croft.

Great location, extraordinay welcome, also a computer available to check email. There simply isn't anything wrong with Castlecroft. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Stirling. (Stirling is also a very pretty small city worth some time to visit. One can walk to all of the city and castle sights from Castlecroft. Certainly one of the top B&Bs in Great Britain (and I've been in well over a hundred of them over the years.
