The northernmost country of the United Kingdom, Scotland is home to a wide range of stunning historical attractions, beautiful landscapes, and modern marvels. Visitors staying at hotels in the major Lowland cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh not only have a wonderful opportunity to explore the great attractions of these two cities, such as the Kelvingrove Art Galley and Museum, and Edinburgh Castle. They can also easily drive or take the train to the city of Stirling, dubbed Scotland’s “heritage capital”.
The city of Stirling has the highest concentration of historic buildings in the country, and the jewel in the crown is probably Stirling Castle. This 12th century fortress once housed iconic figures like Mary Queen of Scots and Robert the Bruce and played a major role in the Wars of Scottish Independence.
