A walk through the pretty village of Cambuskennth, set in a loop of the river forth adjacent to the city of Stirling.

 

 

 

 

One kilometre from the turn off from Alloa Road, the road narrows to enter the village of Cambuskenneth.  This view is from the entry showing Ladysneuk Road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looking back from entering the village

Showing the Wallace Monument on the Abbey Craig.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looking back and more easterly, Dumyat Hill and the other tops of the Ochils.  At the foot of these hills are the mill towns of Menstrie, Alva, Tillicoultry, and Dollar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looking west is the City of Stirling, with the Castle and the refurbished banqueting hall, and the buildings of the old town.

 

 

 

 

 

Proceeding through the village the first turn on the right goes into Ferry Orchard.
