Stirling is an historic city that overlooks a National Park - so there is a real mix of great things to see and do in the area.

This pocket of Scotland is bursting with unique experiences, some steeped in the past, such as the grand Royal Palace of Stirling Castle, and Bannockburn, where one of Scotland's most defining battles took place.

Others will make you feel in the moment, such as coming face-to-face with elephants and lions at Blair Drummond Safari Park, or feeling the wind on your face as you scale a mountain in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. Stirling's got bags going for it: it's time to get stuck in.
