From the 3-star hotel accommodation of the Stirling Management Centre to Scandinavian style timber chalets; from modern en suite rooms to standard study bedrooms, every requirement (and budget) can be met comfortably. Our self-catering chalets, flats and apartments prove particularly popular with the Group travel market.
