Merge with Stirling?[edit]

Of the three attractions listed here, two refer you to the entry in the Stirling guide. If there's that much overlap with Stirling, should we just merge this article into Stirling? I don't know the area so I can't really judge if it makes sense or not, but wanted to raise the question. -Shaundd (talk) 05:55, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

See Talk:Stirling, for a previous discussion. I have only been in Bridge of Allan a couple of times, and didn't see anything in Stirling on those trips (but one was to attend a meeting at the university). I would blame the planners in the 1960s who decided that the new university in Bridge of Allan should be called Stirling. I don't have a strong view either way on merging.

I don't have a strong opinion either way, but I do think we should should do something about the current situation though -- either merge Bridge of Allan with Stirling (perhaps give it its own subsection within Stirling#See), or move the Wallace Monument and Stirling University listings from Stirling to this article and reference Bridge of Allan in the Go next section of Stirling, or perhaps the See section. I'll ping User:Traveler100 since he participated in the discussion on the Stirling talk page. As someone not familiar with the area and reading it for the first time, I just found it odd and confusing that I'm directed to another guide to get detailed info about the main attractions of the town. -Shaundd (talk) 08:26, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
POIs referencing another page is a little confusing, but with a number of hotels, restaurants, rail station and population over 6000 it has enough to be a stand-alone article. The question is, where is the town boundary? Cornton I would say belongs to the Sterling article but are the monument and the University? For the location they are not in the See listings should be moved to the other article but with a reference to them on the go next section. --Traveler100 (talk) 09:31, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
