Exploring Stirling Castle - Edinburgh Day 7

After a week in Scotland, we left Edinburgh for the day to head over to Stirling and visit the astounding Stirling Castle. About an hour’s train ride away, it was nice to relax on the train and watch the Scottish countryside go by while we were brought to our next destination of adventure. 445 more words

Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle was one of many residences of the Kings and Queens of Scotland and played an important role in Scotland’s Wars of Independence.

The present castle dates from the 12th century but what remains can be dated from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries.
