Tour Scotland Travel Video Summer Road Trip Drive West Through Alloa To Ballengeich Cemetery Stirling

Tour Scotland Summer travel video of a road trip drive West through Alloa in Clackmannanshire then onwards on a variety of roads and the old town on ancestry visit to Ballengeich Cemetery below the castle in Stirling, Scotland. Ballengeich Cemetery was opened in 1888 to relieve pressure on the older Valley Cemetery and Mar’s Wark Garden. There are excellent views of Stirling Castle which lies close by to the west. There is also access to the walks on the Gowane Hills. Ballengeich is the old name for the small valley between the cemetery and the castle. As in other cemeteries, an area was set aside for the burials of people who did not pay for a family burial lair. Stirling Castle dominates the view in the background. There are no grave markers in the free ground at the lower end of the Ballengeich Cemetery
