For a view of this area from a distance, and for further information, see NS7993 : Ladies' Rock.

The name Ladies' Rock is explained at that link, in agreement with the following, which is from page 68 of the first volume of "Annals of the Andersonian Naturalists' Society" (1893): "At the highest point of the path we come to the cemetery, in the middle of which is the celebrated Ladies' Rock, from which the dames of the castle were wont to view the sports and tournaments in the valley below."

Accessed by means of stone steps, this viewpoint is located on its own mound at the western edge of the cemetery associated with the Church of the Holy Rude. There is a toposcope (giving directions and distances to various points of interest) here in the form of a plaque on top of the pillar.

In the background of the present photograph is the broad flat plain that runs west from Stirling.
