Having worked with Andrew and Fiona for many years whilst establishing their Callander practice, I'm hardly surprised by the opening of their new optometry practice in Dunblane. Stunning .... the interior of this opticians is incredible. Would highly recommend and have no doubt whatsoever that they will go from strength to strength. Wouldn't surprise me if I'm reviewing a 3rd practice in the future!
