The town of Stirling on the River Forth has witnessed some of Scotland’s most momentous events and is an ideal location for the heritage seeker, standing at the crossroads between north and south, close to both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Freedom fighter William Wallace thwarted his English foes at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297, while Robert the Bruce repeated his victory a few miles away at the tumultuous Battle of Bannockburn 17 years later.

The town’s majestic castle, glaring down from atop a volcanic crag, was home to the great Stuart dynasty and was frequently fought over.

With its magnificent Great Hall and regimental museum of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, the castle is one of the region’s most romantic gems. Nearby is the medieval Church of Holy Rude where James V1 was crowned in 1543.

While the wooden structure that featured in the Battle of Stirling Bridge has long gone, visitors can still see the 15th century Old Bridge which acts as a reminder of the town’s remarkable past.

On the banks of the Forth lie the tragic ruins of Cambuskenneth Priory, once one of the richest abbeys in Scotland.
