Stirling Castle ***
One of Scotland's absolute highlights is mounted high on an old volcanic outcrop and dominates the town’s skyline.
Together with the battlefield of Bannockburn and the Walace Monument, Stirling Castle is the symbol of Scottish Independence. The castle’s long, turbulent history is associated with great names from Scotland’s past, such as William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots. It has seen many royal dramas and witnessed the lives and deaths of almost every Scottish monarch up to the Union of the Crowns in 1603.
