This ochre-coloured building is beautifully refurbished with its atmospheric tiny rooms, passageways, painted ceilings and restored 17th century garden. There’s time to stroll along charming, peaceful streets which were once full of the hustle and bustle of a thriving 17th-century port (please note: some streets are cobbled/uneven). Next, we head for time at leisure in the city of Stirling. Wander around the old town and see the castle in which many a Scottish King and Queen has been crowned.
