Volume notes


Dunblane is located approximately 5 miles from the centre of Stirling and close to busy Bridge of Allen. The pub is right in the heart of the town centre and is close to other local businesses and bars/restaurants. The area continues to develop and attract visitors rather than depend entirely on locals. The pub is located on the main road through the centre and is right next to the train station, so is ideal for capturing commuters travelling to and from the town.
