Discover the Majesty of Stirling Castle

Next, we will drive into Stirlingshire to visit the magnificent Stirling Castle. This historic fortress, perched high on a volcanic rock, offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Step back in time as you wander through the grand halls and beautifully preserved rooms. Immerse yourself in the stories of Scottish royalty, as this castle was the coronation site of many kings and queens, including Mary Queen of Scots.
