Photo - Gowan Hill & Beheading Stone

Gowanhill has a patchwork of woods, grassy areas and scrub. It is rich in biodiversity and a peaceful place to enjoy the wildlife living in the centre of Stirling. The Beheading Stone and the old cannons are found on a small hill top. The beheading stone was used in numerous executions during the 15th Century, most notably that of Murdoch, Duke of Albany, in 1425.

Stirling

Stirling is most famous for the battle of Bannockburn but around the city are the sites of many battles fought from Roman times when southern invaders would drive the Scots into the hills North of Stirling that was land considered unconquerable and worthless. The city now has an interesting ancient quarter, the spectacular castle and the Wallace monument that are all worth visiting and also just outside the city the Blairgowrie wildlife park - Scotland's premier big animal wildlife zoo and adventure playground.
