Area Overview

Built around a Medieval fortress, the central Scottish city of Stirling is regarded as the “Gateway to the Highlands” because of its strategic location on the banks of the River Forth at the foot of some of the region’s famous mountains. Stirling’s history is apparent from the number of prominent landmarks found within the city, the most popular including Stirling Castle, Cambuskenneth Abbey and the Wallace Monument. Due to the city’s location within the Scottish Lowlands, its climate is milder than that further north; meaning a temperate climate year round. Stirling offers excellent rail links to the rest of Scotland, in addition to motorway connections to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Things To Do in Stirling

  • Stirling Castle: Widely regarded as one of the most historically significant landmarks in Scotland, Stirling Castle sits atop a huge rocky crag overlooking the city. Mary, Queen of Scots was crowned at Stirling in 1542 and her ghost is said to walk the corridors to this day.
  • Cambuskenneth Abbey: Whilst this Augustine monastery has mostly been reduced to ruins, its campanile is still mostly intact.
  • The Church of the Holy Rude: Founded in 1129, this historic church is renowned for its intricate stained glass windows. Due to its location adjacent to Stirling Castle it became the location for many royal religious ceremonies.
  • Wallace Monument: Positioned at the summit of Abbey Craig, the Wallace Monument commemorates the 13th century Scottish hero, Sir William Wallace.
