Walked from Abbey Craig, on a walking/sightseeing daytrip by car from home with Jacqui. First visit to Stirling. Not possible to bag the highest point without entering the castle. We were free with English Heritage membership, but an excellent castle so well worth the entry cost anyway!Hillsidenick04/12/2018
On visit to castle. I did walk up from the town centre! Agree with Robert Phillips that hp seems to be on grass to north of Kings Old Buildings that houses the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Museum.pwbellarby15/04/2018
drove up to top cp and was asked are you a member yes was the reply and parked for free, into castle and asked to go to the regimental museum and was told should have phoned first but was told to go up, hp at 7895794089 seems to be grass to the north.robertphillips11/01/2018
With Gwen on way up to Stonehaven. Did the tour of the castle.bolton31/05/2017
After King's Park, up the steep path from S. Hard to know natural highest point and certainly wasn't going to pay £14.50 for castle entrance. Had been on esplanade before when watched George Hincapie win a stage of Tour of Britain.Thearlaichdubh19/02/2017
Disappointingly, we didn't see Rick and Jen. Must have been the fog.Pete R21/01/2017
On a misty swirly day. With Jenx, asked permission to pop in briefly to quickly gain high point and come back out again, no time to see the sights, another time when at least the view would be better! Still at £14.50 a go.....nordicstar21/01/2017
Much more wearing than most tumps because this was a family affair.campagvelocet31/08/2016

Had to be done sometime if Stirling is to be completed. Despite four years in the city as a student I never visited. Highest point moot but clearly somewhere at the northern endColin Crawford16/04/2016
