Interesting building with lots of history. Locals volunteer their time to hand out information and to help monitor who is coming in and out. Donation is expected, approximately £3.

The church was closed when I arrived, but I was able to walk through the cemetery. They views of the city from up there are stunning. The area is very well maintained and there is a lot of history.

We stopped in here on our way up the hill to Stirling Castle. We really enjoyed the church and it's history. This place is recommended. Spend a bit of time in the kirk yard and explore the grave stones, too.
