Visitors to Scotland who are hoping to get an expansive experience of the country’s rich history will want to be sure to reserve a hotel room in the city of Stirling. This will provide them access to the highest concentration of historical buildings in the country and put them in close proximity to nearby sites like the Falkirk Wheel, the Roman ruins of Antonine Wall , and the beautiful Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
Stirling itself is crowned by the stunning Stirling Castle that dates back to at least the early 12th Century and has housed Scotland’s monarchs for centuries. Today, it is owned by Historic Scotland and can be toured by visitors, who should also take time to visit the Church of the Holy Rude and the nearby National Wallace Monument.
Tour Callendar House in Falkirk
Callendar House was founded in the 14th Century and has undergone remarkable redesigns and additions. The result is a building with the style of a 19th century French Renaissance chateau that also features some Scottish baronial elements. It has played host to famous figures like Mary Queen of Scots, Oliver Cromwell, Bonnie Prince Charlie, and Queen Victoria and the building is currently being developed as a major heritage centre.
