Guided William Wallace Way - Brief Itinerary:

Day 1: From an auspicious start at the site of William Wallace’s most famous victory, the battle of Stirling Bridge, our route climbs up via the Beheading Stone to the Castle, probably the most magnificent of Scotland’s castles, and our first amazing view. After a wee look round we drop down via the Smith Museum to weave a way over the flats to reach Cambusbarron. (An easy start of ~2.5-3mls / 4-5km).

Day 2: From there via highways, forests and byways to cross the hillside and drop down to the pretty village of Gargunnock. Then generally following the foot of the Gargunnock escarpment, we head for Kippen with its airy view across the Carse to the mountains beyond (~9mls / 14km).

Day 3: The character of the route changes as we drop down through Buchlyvie to cross Flanders Moss, the land of the Moss Lairds, and into the National Park to reach Aberfoyle (~ 12mls / 19km).

Day 4: All change again as we cross the Mentieth Hills using the ancient trading, droving and raiding route dating back to Roman times, to reach the bustling village of Callander at the foot of the Highland Line (~10mls / 16km).

Day 5: Today’s route is a pleasant and varied walk, finally following the River Teith to end at Doune Castle, a magnificent late 14th century courtyard castle, built for the Duke of Albany (~12mls / 19km).

Day 6: And finally weaving our way to and across the corner of the Ochil Hills to drop down surprisingly to Stirling University and the Wallace Monument where there will be time to climb up to the top. (~9mls / 14km).
