While many will consider the historical buildings and ruins of Scotland to be the country’s greatest feature, the spectacular landscapes of the Lowlands, Highlands, and Hebrides are equally impressive. They include picturesque destinations like Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, and the Cairngorms National Park.
The city of Stirling, located just a short trip from the capital of Edinburgh and the country’s largest city of Glasgow, makes for a perfect place to book a hotel to use as a base for your exploration of the Scottish countryside. Known as "heritage capital of Scotland", Stirling also includes a number of outstanding historical sites such as Stirling Castle, the former home of Mary Queen of Scots and Robert the Bruce, as well as the Church of the Holy Rude.
