Back Walk

A path which rises from Albert Place to Stirling Castle, the Back Walk was built between 1724 and 1791 and is regarded as one of Europe's finest urban walkways, providing panoramic views across the Carse of Stirling. Begun by William Edmonstone, Laird of Cambuswallace, the Back Walk runs around the base of the Town Wall and Castle walls and connects to Ballengeich in the north, allowing a circuit to be completed via Castlehill and the Old Town. Said to be the oldest publicly maintained road in Scotland, the Back Walk was renewed by Stirling District Council in 1993.
