Bridge of Allan is a small town outside Stirling close to Stirling University and the Wallace monument. It can be reached by the A9 out of Stirling or by train.
Allanwater Brewhouse bar is excellent. This is Bridge of Allan's hidden gem, found behind The Adamo. Unfortunately, only open 2-5pm it serves several ales from the brewery. The interesting bar made from barrels has books and games available. there are a variety of tables including outside courtyard, and a large collection of beer bottles.
