From Stirling there are stunning high country roads through the Campsies

with great views and you can stop at North Third reservoir, go for some walks, visit Lochcarron or visit the Duncarron medieval village and stop in the small community of Fintry

you may still be in the Lowlands, but in feel and the strength of the community spirit you are already in the Highlands.

You are either heading westward towards the beautiful village of Killearn

and you are only a few miles from Scotland’s oldest legal whisky distillery at Glengoyne

Alternatively you had back east from Fintry with spectacular views of the Forth valley and the Ochils and reach the Falkirk wheel

where you can go for walks along the canals including a canal tunnel walk.

You are very close to the Roman Antontine wall.

Once you are there, you are not too far from Linlithgow palace

– the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Linlithgow Palace was built and added to over two centuries by the Stewart kings, resulting in a superb Renaissance residence.

Linlithgow is also along the Union canal and there are stunning walks, incl. across the Avon viaduct.

You are not far from Bo’ness with nice walks & views along the River Forth or might wish to head over the Kincardine bridge to the Royal Burgh of Culross
(featured as Cranesmuir with the Witches trial in the Outlander series).

You can visit Culross palace, go for a scenic walk along the tidal Forth estuary with its beaches at low tide or walk up to  Culross Abbey.

The magnificent and ancient sanctuary has been a religious site for more than 1500 years and is one of the oldest Christian Sits in Scotland, dating back to the 6th Century, when St Servanus (St Serf) established a Community of Monks here.

It is also known as the birth place of Saint Kentigern, A.D.612, who became St Mungo, patron Saint of Glasgow.

From here it is only a short journey scenic journey through Clackmannanshire , the Wee County back to Stirling.
