Cambuskenneth

Start and end your walk at the Pedestrian Bridge, built to replace a ferry crossing that existed there for almost 1000 years. Wander through the charming conservation village of Cambuskenneth which was one of the locations that inspired the famous artists, the “Glasgow Boys”.

You’ll see the remains of Cambuskennneth Abbey, founded by King David I around 1140. Much of the abbey is in ruins, except for its magnificent Bell Tower which has survived intact since the 13th century.
Look out for the grave of James III and his Queen, Margaret of Denmark – the mausoleum was constructed on the orders of Queen Victoria in 1864. As you walk out of the village, you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Wallace Monument, which has stood on the nearby Abbey Craig since 1869
