To the west we have areas of lawn, a putting green, driving net, monobloc path to the summer house which has light and power and a paved circular terrace in front. Feature water fountain set in a gravel bed, large greenhouse well stocked with fruit trees and own power and water supply.

Airthrey Croft is within walking distance of the heart of Bridge of Allan. The thriving former spa resort has a fine range of shops, cafes and restaurants, with more extensive shopping facilities being available in nearby Stirling. There is local schooling at nursery and primary level, with secondary schooling at Wallace High in neighbouring Causewayhead. The independent sector is well provided for, with Fairview International in the town itself and other independent schools in the area including Dollar and Morrison's Academy. The town also benefits from its proximity to Stirling University, many of whose sporting facilities are available to the public, as well as a local golf course and sports club. In addition there are plentiful open spaces and woodland walks.

Bridge of Allan is well positioned for travel to all major towns and cities in central Scotland. The M9 motorway is close by, as is the A9 which gives quick access to Perth. The international airports of Glasgow and Edinburgh are within easy reach by road and the main line railway station in Bridge of Allan has regular services to both cities.
