Around Stirling: Walk 2

Here is a short and easy route along well-surfaced, wooded paths, mainly around Stirling Castle and Gowan Hill and finishing with a downhill flourish through the Old Town. Passing in its final stages the museum, the castle, the visitor centre, the Church of the Holy Rude and the Old Town Jail, as well as many fine town houses, the walk for the most part is decidedly rural in character and affords good views of the hills. The route also passes The King's Knot, where in 2011 archaeological work hopes to discover evidence of King Arthur's Round Table (Well, good luck with that!).

This wee two-mile trot complements Walk 2938, a more ambitious excursion which also takes in the Wallace Monument and Cambuskenneth Abbey.

Information for Dog Owners: the walk is considered suitable for biddable dogs, which must be kept on a leash in some parts.
