Each year, visitors flock to the shores of Scotland to experience the country’s rich history and unique culture. While many will tend to focus their tour on the major cities like the capital, Edinburgh, those reserving a hotel in the city of Stirling will quickly discover that it is home to many of the country’s most impressive artefacts.
With the stunning Stirling Castle as its prime example, the city is considered Scotland’s “heritage capital” because it houses the largest concentration of historical buildings in the nation. These include the likes of the Church of the Holy Rude, the National Wallace Monument, and more.
