One of the best parts of touring the beautiful country of Scotland is the opportunity to explore both its historical cities and its picturesque countryside and you’ll find both in and around Stirling. Considered the “heritage capital” of Scotland, Stirling is home to iconic sites like Stirling Castle, the National Wallace Monument, and the Church of the Holy Rude. Even better, it is also just a short trip from outdoor attractions like Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, and attractive Loch Leven with its ruined island castle.
Visit Loch Ard Forest and the Foothills of Loch Lomond
As with many of Scotland’s parks, Loch Ard Forest is not simply a spectacular landscape; set against the backdrop of Ben Lomond, it also offers scenic routes for driving, walking, and cycling. Loch Ard Forest is also home to a variety of wildlife, which includes deer, capercaillies, red squirrels and woodpeckers, and also features a sculpture park.
