Most visitors to Scotland will book their hotels in the country’s major southern cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, and will be well aware of major attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, but fewer will know of the city of Stirling, the country’s “heritage capital”. Stirling lies between Edinburgh an Glasgow, just a short trip from both, and is home to many of the country’s most important historical sites, such as Stirling Castle, home to 300 years of Scottish Monarchs, the National Wallace Monument, and the Bannockburn Heritage Centre, commemorating the victory of the Robert the Bruce’s army over Edward II of England.
The area surrounding Stirling is equally impressive in its historical wonders, and includes sites like the Antonine Wall, which marks the northern border of the old Roman Empire, and Blackness Castle, once used as a stronghold against the arm of Oliver Cromwell.
