The Courtyard is a bright, spacious self-catering property capable of comfortably sleeping and dining eight people.

The historical Bannockburn Heritage Centre is only a 20 minute walk from the city centre and there is also a good selection of both modern and traditional pubs and restaurants in the area. Nick Nairn�s famous cookery school is also a mere 20 minute drive away in nearby Port of Menteith.
