Own a piece of city’s history

Woodside is located on The Back Walk

A former guest house built into Stirling’s city walls has come onto the market through DM Hall.

Woodside is located on The Back Walk – a historic walkway said to be the oldest publicly-maintained road in Scotland – and has five letting rooms and owner’s accommodation over three floors.

The first floor, used recently as owner’s accommodation, includes two bedrooms, a family bathroom, laundry and large store room, with a lounge on the floor above.

The next floor contains a dining room with panoramic views over the city, large kitchen and double en suite letting bedroom.

The third floor comprises four en suite letting rooms, while a floored attic can be used as storage space.

A landscaped garden which includes a water feature and conservatory is located to the rear of the property.

Stirling benefits from high levels of both foreign and domestic visitors due to its famous castle, Wallace Monument and Battle of Bannockburn visitor centre.

The property is being marketed with a guide price of £470,000.

Suzanne Lawrie of DM Hall said: “Our clients have owned the property for over 35 years and now wish to retire. It has operated until recently as a guest house, very much on a lifestyle/restricted basis to suit them.

“Income was generated predominantly from passing trade and word of mouth, generally during the summer months. As a result, this property offers an excellent opportunity for a new owner to develop the business through actively marketing its unique and attractive location.”
