Stirling Castle & the Trossachs
Edinburgh & the Lowlands, United Kingdom
Stirling Castle is one of the most important castles in Scotland’s history. It has witnessed the
crowning of many Scottish Kings and Queens, and the earliest parts of the building date back as far as the 15th and 16th centuries.
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.
