The Vale of Leven is a major tourist attraction with the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park attracting over 4 million visitors per year.

Alexandria Railway Station, which is located within the town centre, provides regular train services to Glasgow Queen Street.


The subject property is situated on the east side of Bank Street, within Alexandria town centre. The property was originally built for the Vale of Leven Constitutional Club in the early 20th century.
