  • Loads of interesting headstones - you could spend a day looking around them. The church opened at 1pm unfortunately we did not have time but it is on our list for next time we visit.

  • Sometimes to see the majesty of a place you have to go away from it, and find the right vantage point. That's certainly the case with Stirling Castle, which I found looks so much better when viewed from the cemetery just below its perch.
  • Possibly the most breathtaking resting place in Scotland. The cemetery is perched high above the Forth Valley plain and offers majestic views. There are centuries old gravestones and it is possible to spend at least an hour or two in deep contemplation in the peacefulness. If you a fan of atmospheric graveyards then perhaps only Glasgow's Necropolis can compare to this. If you have the nerve a winter's evening visit is amazing.
