Sitting on top of an extinct volcano, and of historic and strategic importance, Stirling is a story of two halves: the historic Old Town versus the modern town. With no shortage of historic attractions, and well placed for exploring the Highlands and the Lowlands, come stay at our Stirling hotels to discover the best of central Scotland.
The winding cobbled streets of Stirling Old Town are where you should go to learn about Stirling’s storied past. Here you’ll find the Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle, the Back Wall and the Beheading Stone, the Mercat Cross and the Tollbooth alongside brilliant examples of medieval architecture.
A reason to visit Stirling in and of itself, Stirling Castle brings the castle’s past to life with the help of costumed performers, a museum and the Stirling Skeletons. It’s a place for kids and adults alike.
Stand face-to-face with medieval warriors and experience medieval combat like never before thanks to the 3D technology of the Battle of Bannockburn Experience. Outside, play around in the parkland and check out the statue of Robert the Bruce.
