Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle


One of Scotland’s largest and most important castles, Stirling’s history is long, bloody and fascinating! Sat magnificently on top of Castle Hill, it survived at least eight sieges, the most recent of which was by Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1746, in some part thanks to its defensive position surrounded by steep cliffs.

It was originally built as a fortress, its placing strategic to guard a crossing of the River Forth and has been called ‘the key to Scotland’ on many occasions. As time passed, it became more of a palace and before the 1707 Acts of Union, was the favoured residence of the Stewart monarchs. Several, including Mary, Queen of Scots, were crowned here. Although in place much longer, the current castle walls are 18th century and the majority of the buildings 15th and 16th century and offer a wealth of fascinating things to explore.

Admire the Great Hall and Chapel Royal, stroll through the beautiful gardens and appreciate the superb collection of sculptures as well as the breath-taking views.
