Still a really nice abbey

This was set in a quiet and residential area of the Stirling. Nice walk and nice architecture. Club this with the Stirling Bridge attraction.

Well worth making the visit to the Abbey, I would advise visiting on foot and enjoying the riverside walk , crossing the river into Cambuskenneth village which is very pretty on it's own and walking to the Abbey close behind the main street. As a free attraction it can't be beaten, being utterly drenched in history. The National Trust for... More

This is a good little historic find. Depending on when the gates are open (there are specific times during the different seasons), you can take a stroll into the Abbey and around the graves, Looking at historic graves of kings and queens past and also seeing the remains of the rest of the abbey. There are plaques dotted about the... More

Visited the abbey as part of Doors Open Day and enjoyed a really informative tour by the local archaeologist. Part of the tour involved climbing the spiral staircase to the top of the tower which afforded amazing views towards Stirling Castle and the Wallace monument. Woud definitely recommend a visit during the next open day as guided tour of the... More

When I was studying in Stirling, this was on my walking path. I used to go there all the time with a packed lunch and explore the ruins. It's definitely not on the normal tourist route, but it's nice to be able to explore without a million tourists, and to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet of the... More

Rather off the tourist trail and not very well known but do make the time to visit as it is well worth the effort. Whilst it is a total ruin, it is still a fascinating bit of history but not for young children.

Don't be expecting TOO much here. It's a pretty little place, and a quiet walk there, but there's not too much left besides the bell tower. A few signs with some historical background. Nice place!

Great open space kids can wander around and you can still see them unless they go in or at opposite side of abbey while you wander around great views as well

Took a walk (approx 25 mins) from centre of Stirling to view the remains of the Abbey. Not a lot to see but it is proved to be a pleasant way to while away an afternoon.

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.
