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.

We were quite surprised to find the tomb of King James in the back of the yard. Nothing we read about the place in our travel books mentioned this significance. There are some signs but much...

I really enjoyed the walk out to Cambuskenneth A.bbey! It's not that long (20 minutes from the station, maybe 30) and through lovely neighborhoods. When you cross the pedestrian bridge into Cambuskenneth you're greeted by historic cottages, then just around the corner is the Abbey! Or, the remains of it. I had a lovely day and it was a lovely...

A friend recomended a walk there. Very easy walk, not far from city centre. Just cross the bridge from riverside. A lot of interesting history and many information boards. It's a very quiet area, just near the river and views of fields, and The Ochils.

We only knew about this site b/c our daughter went on a Scotland trip in high school. Lots of history, no entry fee, in the middle of a neighborhood. It's a must see.

If you have never been in a historic abbey or similar then this is worth a visit. Nice location not far from Wallace monument.

Did not know it was there till my aunt & uncle mentioned it. Worth the visit as it has a lot of history attached to it. Clear view of Wallace monument and Stirling Castle

If you want a short walk around Stirling with a bit of history, this is a great detour. Walk across the bridge at River Side and amble down to the Abbey. The views are great and for little effort it is an enjoyable walk

Lovely walk around the abbey and walk up to the water. Great fun on a nice day. Parking a bit tight and need to respect neighbouring houses.
