Gargunnock is a small, historic village at the foot of the Gargunnock Hills and part of the Campsie Fells, situated 6 miles (10 km) west of Stirling.
The sleepy village of Gargunnock, lying just west of the city of Stirling, has been closely associated with some of the most important events in Scottish history. It is believed William Wallace took control of the surrounding areas before his victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. Bonnie Prince Charlie is also said to have passed through on his campaign.
Formerly associated with distilling and the manufacturing of tiles, it is now a commuter settlement for nearby Stirling with thriving sawmilling and joinery industries.
The focal point of the village is the square, which lies adjacent to the 18th century bridge over the Gargunnock Burn. The village has several examples of fine architecture with buildings of interest including the parish church which was built in 1626, the Dissenters Chapel from 1843 and Gargunnock House (1580 - 1794).
