Scottish Experience

The former capital of the entire Kingdom of Scotland, Stirling was known as a Royal Borough until Queen Elizabeth granted it city status in 2002 as part of her Golden Jubilee.

Stirling plays a great part in Scotland's long a proud heritage with it's Bannockburn Heritage centre displaying the story of how the areas was the site for the great 'Battle of Bannockburn' where King Robert the Bruce and his brave men secured Scotland's freedom. The National Wallace Monument also provides full details on William Wallace himself and his famous win over the English at the 1297 Battle of Stirling Bridge.
Stirling City Breaks

As the home of Scottish heritage, the city features the majestic cliff top Stirling castle where visitors can literally feel where Scottish monarchs ruled in regal splendour for centuries and craftsmen and merchants plied their trade below the castle rock.

The old town district itself holds a scenic pathway 'The Back Walk' which rivals the attractions of the city walls of Chester and York, along its route encountering a magnificent early 17th century townhouse named the Argyll's Lodging and Holy Rude - the medieval Church in which James VI of Scotland was crown King at the tender age of one year old in 1567.

Amongst other attractions is the Blair Drummond Safari Park, home to many fascinating animals from across the world and the Old Town Jail which has been transformed from a grim Victorian reform prison into a exciting visitor attraction.

Despite is obvious historical pride and intrigue Scotland's 'newest city' Stirling has firmly set it's foot down in the 21st century with a range of bars, nightclubs, entertainment and dining facilities spread widely across the city, offering a cultured, educational yet exciting and truly mind blowing experience.
