Travelling to CastleCroft B&B by car

How to reach Castlecroft B&B, Stirling FK8 1TN

Attention GPS and Map Users:

A few years ago, Ballengeich Road was re-aligned. The lower end of Ballengeich Road now starts 100 yards to the right (looking towards the castle) from where it formerly started – on the other side of the roundabout. Your GPS or map might send you into the new road barrier!

From Motorway M9, Junction 10:

On exiting at Junction 10, follow the brown “Stirling Castle” direction signs. When you reach the roundabout at the foot of the Castle hill, take the second exit, towards Stirling Castle. Just 20 yards past this roundabout, turn left up Ballengeich Road towards the castle. After about 400 yards, turn right into the signed Castlecroft driveway.

From the South, Edinburgh or Glasgow on the M9 motorway:

Exit the motorway at Junction 10. (Ignore the sign at Junction 9 suggesting that leads to all Stirling destinations). See above for directions from Junction 10. You can see Castlecroft from the motorway. As you approach Junction 10, you will see Stirling Castle perched on the castle hill to your right. At the left end of the castle hill, about 1/4 of the way up the hill, is a cluster of 4 white houses. Castlecroft is the top one, closest to the castle.

From Callander and beyond – Oban, Glencoe, Fort William, etc. using the A84:

Approach Stirling on the A84. This road crosses the M9 motorway at Junction 10. See above for directions from Junction 10.

From the M9 north – Dublane, Perth

Exit the M9 at Junction 10. See above for directions from Junction 10.

Loch Lomond and north Glasgow using the A811.

The second sight of Stirling entering on the A811 is the Castle perched atop the castle hill (the first is The Wallace Monument). A bit closer, you can see a small cluster of 4 white houses to the lower left of the castle. Castlecroft is the top house, closest to the castle. About 300 yards from the foot of the castle hill, the A811 encounters the first small roundabout (due for enlarging very soon). Take the first exit (a left turn) here. Now the castle is perched spectacularly on your right. Take the first right turn, signposted Ballengeich Road, just before the next roundabout. Turn right into the signed Castlecroft driveway about 400 yards up the hill.

From the A91 – St Andrews, Kinross, Dollar:

At the first roundabout approaching Stirling, take the first exit towards “Stirling A91” (observe the Wallace Monument on the hilltop to your right). At the next roundabout, take the third exit towards “Bridge of Allan A907” (the Wallace Monument will still be on your right). At the next roundabout, take the first exit towards “Stirling A9”. Pass the Esso Station, pass under a rail bridge, and pass over Stirling Bridge. At the next roundabout, take the fourth exit, towards “Perth”. At the next roundabout, take the 2nd exit, again towards “Perth”. At the next roundabout, take the first exit, towards “Perth” yet again. At the next roundabout (don’t worry, this is the last one!) take the first exit towards “Erskine Bridge”. Just 20 yards past this roundabout, turn left up Ballengeich Rd. Turn right at the Castlecroft sign about 400 yards up the hill.
