Kilronan House, Bridge of Allan  Kilronan House was built in 1853 by Reverend James Blair and is one of the oldest houses of Bridge of Allan, which is a nice little town close to Stirling - the important so-called Gateway to the Highlands.
In the 18th ct the region around Bridge of Allan was well-known for its copper-mines, but after the doors of these mines had been closed forever the little town profited from the change of a mining town to a Victorian holiday resort around 1848. Many of the fine castle-like buildings like Kilronan House were built in the middle of the 19th ct.

Bridge of Allan Bridge of Allan is situated on the old A9 route north approximately 2 miles from Stirling city centre. This for centuries was the main route to the north of Scotland avoiding the marshy ground of the River Forth floodplain. Here you can still find the original spa buildings, especially the old pump room which is a restaurant now. They are only a short walk away from Kilronan House.

Lecropt Church, Bridge of Allan Stirling Bridge and Wallace Monument Another interesting feature of our little town is the nice Lecropt Church in the grounds of its quiet old churchyard. Kilronan House is only a stone“s throw away from the famous landmark of Stirling, the Wallace Monument high up in the hills but also from the ancient Stirling Bridge, Stirling Castle and the University of Stirling.

St. Mungo, Glasgow Edinburgh Castle  It is very easy to reach the two big cities of Scotland, Edinburgh and Glasgow, from here by car or by train. As there is free parking at the railway station you can visit both cities without the disadvantage of a car in a big town. Just stroll through the streets, go shopping and return back in the evening to enjoy the hospitality of our noble guest-house.
Of course, Bridge of Allan can be used as a starting point to explore the wonderful region called The Trossachs and the perhaps most romantic loch of Great Britain - Loch Lomond.
