Our home is in a semi rural position about 9 miles from Stirling and 3 miles from Alloa which is a good shopping centre with supermarkets and independent shops. The house has excellent views of the nearby Ochil Hills. There is a network of local footpaths and cycle tracks and for those who like horses a riding school nearby.

Stirling an important town in Scottish history with its imposing castle as well as monuments to William Wallace(think Mel Gibson in Braveheart!) and Robert the Bruce who won the battle of Bannockburn a few miles from where we live. There is easy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Scottish Highlands by road, rail or bus. The nearest railway station is Alloa. The Ochil Hills and the Trossachs provide lots of interesting opportunities for walking and cycling. Then there are the golf courses and antiques centres. Day trips offer many options, St Andrews for Golf, the East Neuk of Fife for old fishing villages, Perth for interesting shopping, Callander, Crieff, Comrie and Aberfoyle for wonderful scenery.

We are Roger and Kate two almost retired academics. Roger works in criminal justice management. He has worked for the Council of Europe giving advice to new member states from Eastern Europe on the treatment of people in detention. Kate worked as a manager in a college in Edinburgh. She writes training resources in management and human resources. When we are not working we enjoy caring for our garden and travelling and house exchanging in Europe and Australia.

We are planning our next trip to Australia in 2015. We have a Nissan Patrol and an off road camper trailer which we keep with our daughter in Melbourne. We want to combine travelling with some home exchanges. We will arrive in Australia in June 2015. We intend to spend about five months exploring Queensland and the Northern Territory including Cape York and the Gulf of Carpentaria as well as Darwin and Kakado. We can offer a non simultaneous exchange.
