Back Walk in Stirling

If Stirling Castle is closed or you don’t want to pay the entrance fee, you can still have a very interesting and scenic walk. You’ll find the steps down to Back Walk at the top left corner of the castle car park. Back Walk is the oldest publicly maintained road in Scotland, following the perimeter of the Old Town walls.

Looking down from Back Walk

As you descend, the leaves on the trees obscure most of the views. Back Walk ends beside the Albert Halls, just up from the main shopping area in Stirling.
