Stirling Castle

Forth Valley Tourist Route

On the approach to Stirling you’ll see the rolling Ochil Hill range stretched out before you, and also spot two of the city’s most famous attractions – Stirling Castle upon the hill in the city centre and the towering National Wallace Monument on Abbey Craig, a hill to the east of the city. At the castle you can meet James V and Mary of Guise, in the form of costumed guides in the Royal Palace, admire the meticulously woven Stirling Tapestries and, if you have children in tow, explore the wonderfully playful palace vaults.
