Another ruin and neglected site. In Scotland a tourist site means an abandoned site. Sorry but if its good old ruins you want head north to the highlands or get back in the old parts of the old cities.

Free entry and a hidden gem. James IV is burried here and it is of the beaten track. Well worth looking it up and seeing ancient Scottish history.

With only the bell tower and one original entrance arch standing, it was still wonderful to walk the remaining stone foundation of the abbey and read the descriptions. Rain and mist added to the atmosphere as I stood in front of the meeting room where my 11th great grandfather and his brother witnessed a document signing around 1580. The view of Stirling Castle, very important in the context of the abbey, was mostly obstructed by trees. The trees should be trimmed or removed.
