VISITORS to Stirling are able to take in all the attractions on a single hop-on, hop-off bus service, until September.

The FirstBus 1314 takes in the Wallace Monument, the Old Bridge, the Old Town Jail and Tolbooth, Church of the Holy Rude and the castle, also stopping at the key transport hub of the bus and train station.

There are 13 journeys a day with the aim of providing a single service that allows residents and visitors to retrace Stirling’s ancient history and see all the city has to offer.

Councillor Margaret Brisley, convener of the Finance and Economy Committee and Stirling Council, said: “Stirling has a unique historical offering to visitors and tourists and it’s great to see a service like this being delivered in the city.

“There is so much to see and this service will hopefully draw people in and boost tourism by giving them the chance to see all of that in one go.

“And with the introduction of the Explore Stirling App, which was launched earlier this year, I’m sure visitors will be keen to take the opportunity to listen to some of the fascinating tales and stories associated with these famous landmarks while hopping on and off as they make their way round the city.”

Improving connectivity between attractions is the main aim, supporting the Tourism and Events Plan.

Graeme Macfarlan, commercial director for First Scotland East, said: “First Scotland East are delighted to be teaming up in partnership with Stirling Council to once again provide a unique service linking the main tourist attractions in Stirling, such as the iconic Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument.

“Hopefully, local residents along with tourists will support this route and enjoy this unique way to take in such a scenic route.”
