One of the most memorable places to visit in Stirling. View from top is huge, story and history behind is interesting. Makes me to watch Brave Heart again. I probably would recommend visiting off season.

Quiet and slow, nothing particularly brilliant in the selection, however, good enough for a quick snack.

Nice walk up to the monument. It takes about 15-20 minutes. The views as you walk up are beautiful. We were there on a perfect Fall day. When you enter the monument the history lesson begins.

Hello, although dogs are welcome on the grounds surrounding the monument, I am afraid they are not permitted to the monument itself. I hope this helps.
