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.

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).

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

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
