Edinburgh to Stirling

50 miles (80 km)

Travel along National Cycle Routes 1 and 76 and enjoy splendid views of the Firth of Forth.
The route starts in the centre of Edinburgh, near the famous castle, and heads through the suburbs of Roseburn and Barnton to the coast where you can enjoy a lovely traffic free section that runs along the Firth of Forth to Queensferry.
From Queensferry the route continues to Bo'ness on quiet roads save for a pleasant waterside stretch along the Union Canal at Craigton. You continue to Grangemouth where there are decent views of the Rivers Carron and Forth. The final stretch takes you to Stirling on a mixture of on road and traffic free sections.
