Although Alloa is not a holiday resort it was an ideal location for travelling in different directions during our week's holiday, to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Loch Lomond and the Highlands. The fascinating city of Stirling with its castle and the Wallace Monument is just a few miles away, as are Castle Campbell and the Ochil Hills. Sterling Mills outlet discount retail village is also nearby. Salruth Cottage is extremely spacious, with deceptively large reception rooms and bedrooms, whereas the photo of the outside suggests a small dwelling. The helpful owner has equipped it really well and she obviously has high standards. We were welcomed with flowers and some basic food supplies, such as milk, coffee, tea bags, sugar and biscuits.
