Around Stirling

Map showing the location of StirlingshireThe area of the burgh of Stirling covers most of the region spreading outwards to include villages such as St. Ninians, to the south, and Causewayhead, to the northeast.

About 5km/3 miles to the north, following the A9, is Bridge of Allan, with Dunblane a further 5km/3 miles north - both on the banks of the Allan Water. Heading south, also on the A9, leads to Bannockburn.

To the east is Cambuskenneth. The abbey here was founded by David I c.1140 for the Augustinians. James III and his wife, Margaret of Denmark, are buried here, under a tomb that was erected here in 1865. The abbey is now looked after by Historic Scotland.

Bridge across the River Teith seen from Doune CastleFrom Stirling, heading roughly northwest along the A84 following closely to the old Military Road, leads to Callander and the eastern edge of the area referred to as the Trossachs. Just after passing Deanston, the road crosses the River Teith and heads towards Doune. The A811, heading west from Stirling, is another route into the Trossachs, leading to Balloch at the southern end of Loch Lomond. The A905 heads south east into the Falkirk area.
