“i only saw the outside.”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

It was very interesting to go see this church - from the outside. Although the inside does not open for touring until May, i was blessed to see it in a wedding video by the hosts at Heatherdale B&B. Fabulous!

“Beautiful and Amazing!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We truly enjoyed the feeling of this place. To think of the historic figures who have passed thru here. Close you eyes and hear the Kilted figures, quietly walking in with leather wrapped around cold feet. To be here is to be in history..

“How old is that headstone?”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

While making our travels around Stirling, we stopped in at the Church of the Holy Rood, more specifically, the cemetery behind it between the Church and Stirling Castle. Okay, it sounds morbid, but it was a beautiful and peaceful spot.

There are headstones there dating from the 17th century, statues, history abounds, and there is a hill towards the back of the cemetery that you can climb and look out over the countryside. It is also a great spot to take pictures of the castle without getting any cars and foot traffic in the picture.

If you want to take a break from the rest of Stirling, I recommend paying your respects here.

“Holy Rude”

What a wonderful presentation! The head set information was very informative. The display was very nicely set up and the garden was lovely.

“A quiet and tranquil place”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

I took time to read the various wall plaques about who is buried in this church and how they helped the local population, I found it very moving and tranquil
