The neighbourhood

Old Plean is a quiet village, but has three general store shops about a 10 minute walk from the Annex. There is an excellent bakery and also a hairdresser salon.
Both the chip shop and Eurospice take away do good food at reasonable prices. Nearby there are several eating places...pub restaurant at Pirnhall in Stirling and Outside Inn at Larbert, Chinese at The Tea House in Larbert.
Plean Country Park is directly behind the house and is a beautiful place for a walk at any time of the year. We can probably even provide you with a pair of boots if you are here during the muddy season!
There are several well known tourist attractions in the area...Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, Falkirk Wheel, The Kelpies. For energetic guests there's fishing and horseriding at a nearby farm.
