Quiet spot but interesting, if you like old ruins and history.

Quick trip only. Would return again for a proper walk around. Lovely setting and so historic (no other reason to go there but the history).

Part of Scotland's History and so often by-passed. Take time to read about it before you visit and the significance will become very apparent.

Spend enjoyable few hours here with two friends. We had a walk about and learned some facts we did not know. Interesting place to visit and well worth a visit

very nice abbey,lot of it is ruins,but it is worth a stop to have a wee look around. you can get in to the bottom of the standing tower,shame it is locked for going up the tower,nice wee stop to stretch your legs though and you can get a few decent photo's.

Went for a lovely walk around abbey and continued down to waterside. Beautiful walk suitable for all ages. Worth a visit although parking can be a little difficult

I loved these ruins. As a bonus you get to see King James III burial site. The abbey is hidden away in a residential area and parking consists of parking near houses and walk through a cattle guard. We actually walked by cows to get to the Abbey. There are signs that are informative and best of all its free.... More

The walk out to the abbey was well worth it once there. the standing bell tower is really interesting.

As my sister in law stays in the Riverside area of Stirling, my family and i have made numerous walking visits to the abbey over the years. Its a fascinating building in terms of Scottish history but not much else. There is no visitor centre. no toilets or any sort of tourist facilities. Probably best visited during the summer months...

This is a lovely, peaceful old place. The weather was quite cold & windy when we were here so we didn't stay as long as I would've liked. It's all mostly just ruin, but it's really beautiful and in a great scenic location. Easy to reach from bus stops and by car.

It's a longish walk there from the city centre, especially if you get lost and take the looonnnnggg was around like us via the Wallace Monument! But it's worth it and steeped in history. No fuss or entrance fees, it feels like you've found a hidden gem.
