Walkit is an urban walking route planner that covers Stirling (including Bannockburn, Cambusbarron, Bridge of Allan and Cambuskenneth). The planner will help you find your best route between A and B or you can ask it to find a route within a radius of a set location if you're looking for a 30 minute lunchtime walk for example. It will also calculate your approximate steps, calories burned, route gradient and will also give you step free routes if you want. It's available online and also comes as an app available from Apple App Store and Google Play.
