No Drones, Please

With the increasing use of Drones, Stirling District Tourism would like to remind Drone users of the relevant legislation.

The users of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones) are required to comply with The Air Navigation Order 2009 (SI 2009 No. 3015), and this is not possible on The Abbey Craig due to the specific safety requirements of the site.

Permission must be obtained from The Civil Aviation Authority and from the site management team to use a drone in this location.

The National Wallace Monument is managed and operated by Stirling District Tourism Ltd., who are working with Police Scotland to ensure the safety of all visitors to The Abbey Craig and to the Monument, and to ensure that drones are operated in compliance with regulations.
