Stop At: Stirling Bridge, Bridgehaugh Road, Stirling Scotland

Whilst en-route to The Wallace Monument we travel by Stirling Old Bridge, the present Stirling Old Bridge was built in the 1400s, replacing a succession of timber bridges. Undoubtedly the best-known of these was one that stood nearby in the 1290s, when Sir William Wallace and Sir Andrew Moray defeated Edward I’s forces at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. The bridge also played a part in the Jacobite Rising of 1745, when an arch was removed to forestall Bonnie Prince Charlie’s forces as they marched south. The bridge today remains one of the best medieval masonry arch bridges in Scotland.
