We passed this statue on route from Stirling to Callander. It is dedicated to the founder of the SAS and is a very well-executed piece of sculpture in a beautiful, yet simple, setting.

One of my favourite places with fantastic views over the hills. Parking is ok. Has a wild freedom feel to it but is well maintained and clean. Thought provoking when reading about the history of Sir David Stirling and reading the names of the fallen.

On the country road drive between Doune and Dunblane this is the perfect place to stop for a photo on a clear, sunny day to capture the beautiful Scotland scenery. A panoramic shot works good here. Parking is plenty and free. When we were visiting...More
