Bridge of Allan developed as a popular spa resort in the 19th century when the great and the good came to enjoy its clean air and modern facilities. Authors including Charles Dickens were regular visitors during its heyday and Sir Walter Scott famously wrote his poem The Lady of the Lake about the area. Many of the town's original handsome Victorian villas and public buildings can still be seen today.
In case you were ever in danger of forgetting that you were in the Gateway to the Highlands, Bridge of Allan is overlooked by the National Wallace Monument just outside nearby Stirling, and the scene of Scotland's victory at The Battle of Stirling Bridge. The visitor centre attached to this famous Scottish landmark is packed full of exhibits and displays to walk you through the heroic life of Sir William Wallace, the â€˜Guardian of Scotland'.
Walking is one of the most popular activities for visitors to Bridge of Allan which has so much spectacular Scottish countryside on its doorstep. A popular walk to Dunblane along the Darn Road was reportedly a favourite of Robert Louis Stevenson, and legend has it that a cave on the road was the inspiration for Ben Gunn's cave in Treasure Island.
