Visiting Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle which is located in Stirling, is one of the largest and most important castles in Scotland, both historically and architecturally.

The castle sits on top of Castle Hill, surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs an intrusive crag giving it a strong defensive position which forms part of the Stirling Sill geological formation, a formation of quartz-dolerite around 350 million years old, which was subsequently modified by glaciation to form a "crag and tail", this has made it an important fortification in the region from the earliest times.

Under the early Stewart kings Robert II and Robert III, the earliest surviving parts of the castle were built.

Today Sterling is one of the best for its long history and its remarkable condition. There are tours that last about one hour and provide valuable insights into the castle and the history of the people who lived there.

Much thought has been put into the renovation of the buildings and the information in the museum, you will be amazed by the ceiling in the king's outer chamber! there are costumed interpreters in some of the rooms to explain the items in the rooms.

Be sure to go up on the ramparts to view the Wallace Tower on the distant hill, and also the King's Knot located in a field below the castle.

What a great castle to visit

Your review
During my time in Scotland, I had the opportunity to see a number of castles, but the one that stood out to me the most was Stirling Castle. Within the boundaries of the castle, I discovered that Stirling was the one that allowed me the most freedom to travel wherever I pleased and explore the grounds. The splendour of the castle was enhanced by the natural surroundings in Scotland. It would have been amazing if I could have spent more time in Scotland and seen more of the country. If you have a choice between visiting Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle, you should travel to Stirling. You won't be sorry that you did it. The Wallace Monument is not far away and provides an even more breathtaking panorama of the surrounding area. It is essential that one goes and sees it.
