Views on a clear day are incredible. Parking free. Could do with a couple of proper benches with back support to sit on if you wanted to sit outside instead of in your car.

The David Stirling Memorial on "Hill o' Row" near Doune commemorates the founder of the SAS in a beautiful setting. There is a small car park. Well worth a visit to recognize this founder of the SAS. Beautiful setting.

It's nothing very special, but the country side is lovely and it's a good break from road tripping, for sure. There is nothing around it. So don't expect any food or anything close by.

We came across it by accident and glad we stopped. Names of the fallen SAS members at this memorial to their heroic deeds.

Also called the David Stirling Monument or Memorial on some sat navs. It is mid way between Doune and Dunblane, on north of B824 about 2 km from the A820 turning. If you have reached the A9, you've gone too far. There are no signs...More

This is an exceptionally special and humbling memorial to an exceptional man who developed an outstandingly talented team of people who fought and fight in unimaginable situations. As I said a humbling memorial. Honour and respect in an abundance to all who serve to protect.
