Cambuskenneth Abbey & Wallace Monument, Stirling, Scotland

The tower to the foreground is Cambuskenneth Abbey, the tower on the horizon is the Wallace Monument which was constructed in memory of William Wallace.

 

Cambuskenneth Abbey was originally known as the Abbey of St Mary or the Abbey of Stirling. The only remaining standing building is the bell tower, probably built in the late 1200s, and heavily restored in the 1860s. The rest of the abbey's main complex, including the abbey church and cloister, is visible only from stone courses on the ground.

 

The site contains a burial ground and the tomb of James III and Margaret of Denmark.
