Stirling Castle is a great symbol of Scottish independence & a source of national pride. Visitors can now step back into the sumptuous world of Stirling Castle’s royal court. A £12 million project has returned the six apartments in the castle’s Renaissance palace to how they may have looked in the mid-16th century.

A place of power, beauty and history, discover the favoured residence of Scotland's Kings and Queens! A great day out for all the family and simply unmissable!
