About the location


Falkirk 12 miles; Glasgow 30 miles.

Stirling is Scotland’s youngest city and yet one that has so much history, specifically Mary Queen of Scots and William Wallace. ‘He who holds Stirling holds Scotland’ was the advice that inspired many famous battles including Bannockburn, and the story of Stirling’s history is evident today in the Old Town, which also boasts family ghost walks and tales from the graveyard. Stirling Castle boasts a superb, dramatic cliff-top location overlooking the city and provides a stunning outlook from its battlements to the mountains, cliffs and winding River Forth snaking away to Edinburgh. The nearby Wallace Monument also offers breathtaking views for those willing to attempt the steps to the top! Stirling is a university town and, as such, has many restaurants, bars and coffee houses as well as extensive shopping facilities. Its central location offers excellent access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth, each less than an hour away by car, while closer to home is the historic, Victorian spa town of Bridge of Allan.
