First time we have been here we parked in a small car park at the top of the road (please note there isn't a lot of parking and u will need to walk about 5mins down the road to get the the start of the forest to get to the pulpit) we came to the first sign about the pulpit but there is no info on which way to go ect.

This can be confusing and did take us some time to find the correct area

I will give the best directions I can below I hope this helps....

Walk past the first sign and keep on the road for another couple of minutes, you will come up to a wall and part of it has come away you will see a sign behind the wall and climb up the part of the small wall that has came away and go to your left and keep walking through the forest and keep walking forward from there you will see a field in the back had cows when we went and you will see a set of steps these has come away a bit and can be slippy there is usually a rope to hold onto but take your time much easier on the way back up hope this helps.

Please also notes that you will have to walk through water to get the the water fall about knee deep and would bring footwear of sorts or something for your feet and wouldn't wear light clothing as it will get covered in dirt to get down to the pulpit.

It it all worth the trip though we will be back again more prepared next time though.

A fantastic natural formation with beautiful views. Almost Tolkeinesque in the way the places had been formed by water eroding the sandstone.
The access is rough and the parking is nothing short of appalling. The council really should make getting there safe a priority given the numbers there during my visit which want crowded and it was a nightmare parking. There are no directions in where to go and it's easy to waste the and end up taking a risk by choosing wrong way down.
Once down in the gorge you need to wade through the burn to get to the mushroom rock which was fantastic since it was a hot day.

A steep descent into the gorge from the steps located on the south side of the river. Best tackled wearing sturdy footwear. Once at the base of the gorge the setting is worth the effort.

It's really an enchanted place, especially when you go all the way down to the pulpit, where the river's water is black and you're surrounded by the rocks. Amazing views from the wood and from the river, nice walk, interesting rock formations. A must see place

We heard about this place known as the Devil's Pulpit from friends whilst staying up in Glasgow.

They mentioned it's a wonderful place to visit deep in the heart of Stirling off the beaten track and 2 miles from nowhere.

The only feasible way to get here was by car and that is what we chose to do.

Car parking is adhoc,not easy to park as limited spaces, it's not even properly sign posted for the car parking or the gorge itself. This was our first two critiques before we even stepped out the car.

The signage to the gorge once you start walking is zero, you need to ask fellow travellers how to get to it and the way in and out. Litter is sporadically thrown as it's becoming apparent that nobody looks after the area which is a shame.

As for toilets and a place for refreshments forget it, mother nature is calling for your toilet breaks and bring your own refreshments. Nothing around.

Lighting is nowhere so best time to go is early morning, or afternoon as once it gets darker you are stuck as visibility is zero.

The walk around the area looking down into the gorge is a feat in itself, no safety barriers so go near the edge and you are highly likely to slip and fall down and your chance of survival is zero as it's a massive drop. Extreme caution keep away from the edge.

You will notice a small gap which just happened to be the area to walk down to the bottom of the gorge. You have precarious steep steps, no handrail just thin green rope you have to hold onto to stable yourself.
If the leaves are wet you may slip and tumble so again extreme caution.

Once you get to the bottom, you will be mesmerised by the sheer beauty, this is your hidden gem and all the difficulties and almighty challenges you faced getting here just slip away.

The place is beautiful, sheer tranquility at its best.

Definitely a place to go, never alone ideal with friends for safety and take it extremely slow but it's so worth the sights.

Definitely get there when there’s quite a bit of time till dark, it’s in the middle of nowhere and we had to walk 2,5 km to the nearest city to catch a bus back and truly nearly got hit by a car a few times as there are no street lights the first approx. 2 km. It was too dark for us to find out how to get into the glen, as there were hardly any signs. There’s a neat pub in the city of Killearn from where the bus leaves though. If we had gotten there earlier we would probably have liked it more, so go early or in summer. Or rent a car. But it looked cool from what we saw.

Si vous réussissez à trouver ces gorges, un premier mot : bravo ! Vous l’aurez compris, le devil’s pulpit se mérite. Vous trouvez un tout petit parking avec un panneau à l’entrée du parc. L’escalier pour descendre aux gorges se trouvent après le pont. Vous devez traverser ce pont (route avec voitures attention) puis prendre à gauche ! La balade ne prend qu’une vingtaine de minutes mais comptez 1h-1h30 pour trouver le sesame

We found details of this as a hidden gem to visit whilst we were in the area. We arrived around 10am and parked where we thought was an appropriate parking place- a makeshift car parking area near the main road junction.
There is no signage to direct you to the Devils Pulpit and in fact it appears to be fenced off with areas of fencing that have been broken down to gain access. We followed a well worn path and hoped for the best. Gut instinct took us down into the gorge, you need to be part mountain goat, very brave and have very good agility to make it down to the bottom. Once down there, it is STUNNING, Mother Nature at her finest, a beautiful gorge with the water running red due to the peat content… well worth the scramble.
HOWEVER, there are piles of discarded clothing and rubbish left by selfish individuals who have no respect for their surroundings or of others, I have no clue who they think was going to clean up after them GRRRRRRR!
We crossed the water and climbed back up the opposite side, when walking across the top of the gorge we came across the official set of ‘steps’ leading down to the gorge, higher upstream than we had been. Now please, when I say steps…..these are now just lumps of stones that have been washed out of place and are no safer than scrambling down the bank, in fact more climbing was required to get back up these, but if you can manage it then it’s worth the effort!
Reading past reviews since our visit I am not even sure that this place is officially ‘open’ or not! It’s beautiful but dangerous and you need to be suitably prepared for muddy, slippery ground underfoot!
