The one for the battle is about 100 yards further upstream, but this one looks OK, and you can walk or cycle across without traffic, there are excellent viewing points for castle and Wallace monument, so great for photography

Stirling Bridge offers beautiful views. Cross the bridge on foot. It is closed to vehicle traffic. Lovely old stone bridge.

I'm sure this is a bit late... But yes, you can. It is about a 10/15 minute walk from the train station.
