I was delighted to read that the influential travel guide, Lonely Planet, has just voted Scotland 3rd best country in the world to visit in 2014, following which this video was released yesterday, 30 October. Click here to view at YouTube. [Opens in a new tab/window]
There are certainly many world class events taking place in Scotland during 2014. There’s the Ryder Cup golf tournament at Gleneagles, the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and 2014 is also Scotland’s year of Homecoming.
Both Gleneagles and Glasgow (also Edinburgh, our capital city) are within easy travelling distance by car. There are also frequent fast connections by train and express bus.
According to Lonely Planet, Edinburgh is the ‘most gothic city outside Transylvania’ and Glasgow has never ‘looked so good’ Who am I to disagree!
And, of course, here in Stirling, there is much to see, with Stirling Castle, Bannockburn, the National Wallace Monument just a short walk from The Old Tram-House and stunning scenery on the doorstep.
At the time of writing, I still have rooms available but suggest you may like to book early, especially if you plan to be attending the Ryder Cup and/or the Commonwealth Games.
I hope very much to have the pleasure of welcoming you to The Old Tram-House B&B, Stirling in 2014. It’s going to be an eventful year!
