Join us for a walking tour of the Bridge of Allan Conservation Area, led by local historian Malcolm Allan.

Bridge of Allan is a beautiful 19th century spa town at the foot of the Ochil Hills, once host to Robert Louis Stevenson and Charles Dickens during the height of its popularity (and more recently The Beatles), and the Conservation Area contains many of the town’s original fine Victorian villas and public buildings, many of which are Listed.

Malcolm Allan has been a resident of Bridge of Allan for 50 years, and as well as having served on the committees of various local groups and organisations including the Community Council, he has written three published books on the history of the town and its historic buildings.

To help you on the walk, we will have some refreshments from 6pm at the Old Bridge Inn. Please note that the walk will take approximately 1.5 hours and we will be pounding the pavements so please wear appropriate footwear, and clothing suitable for changeable weather. There may be some steeper gradients in places - please contact us in advance if you have any mobility questions.

Toilets will be available at the beginning of the walk.

There is on street car parking at the Old Bridge Inn and Bridge of Allan train station is a short walk away.
