Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

While exploring Callander I came across this treasure of a place to visit. I'm a walker myself there was a good free car park at the end of a road off the Main Street. The river was sparkling in the sunshine and people were resting on seats admiring the view of a small islet with hills in the background. The mound steps were alive with happy children rushing to the top to take in the views, never minding the historical value. My experience set me off on my further 1.5 miles back to my lodging place. I shall remember The Mound of St. Kessog

We climbed this steep little mound to see what was there as did many other people but the only thing to see was the lovely view.
Its part of the callander heritage trail and there is a few info boards but they are quite difficult to read as they are so dirty.
It sits in one of the pay and display carparks but definitely don't go out of your way to visit just this.

Popular with little kid running up and down the mound. We sat nearby overlooking the river. Free of charge.

It is vey easy to walk past this ancient monument without seeing it. On the banks of the river Teith, nearby an old graveyard you can find the small, smooth-sided and flat-topped mound.That’s “Hill of Kessog” mound, named after one of Scotland’s most important early Celtic saints. Saint Kessog preached in the area in the 6th century. The artificial hill that bears his name was built much later, in the 12th century. The view from the top is amazing.

The Mound is a scheduled monument and St Kessog preached from this spot in the 6th century the mound resembles a motte and Bailie and evidence of buildings round the base has been found.The first church was built in 1238 ad and would have been a modest affair . There are steps up the mound giving you a good view of the river and there is no charge to climb it . The car park is right beside it
