Stirling Castle & the Trossachs
Stirling Castle is a great symbol of Scottish independence and a source of national pride. Knights, nobles and foreign ambassadors once flocked to the Royal Court at Stirling Castle to revel in the castle's grandeur.
Stirling is also a gateway to the magnificent Trossachs, an area of peaks, glens and lochs first made popular by Sir Walter Scott's publications of 'Rob Roy' and 'The Lady of the Lake'. It is said that crowds set off by the hundreds to view the spectacular scenery described by Scott in his books, until then comparatively unknown. The beautiful scenery is sure to enchant you too.
