to get into the castle cafe does one have to pay for entry to the castle itself or is the cafe a place where i can simply go for lunch without the castle?

Re: Castle

by ghosthunter

The cafe is past the entry gate . When i visited i didn't go in the cafe but as it's on the inside i would imagine you have to buy an entrance ticket to the castle to be able to use the cafe. Great views of the surrounding area from the car park by the way.

You will have to buy an entry ticket for the Castle in order to access the cafe. Quite frankly, the cafe isn't terrific but the Castle is - much better than the one in Edinburgh. If all you want is somewhere to have lunch, then there are better places than the Castle cafe. I find it hard to visualise going to Stirling and not visiting the Castle..... may be you are only passing through on your way to somewhere else but still.......

I think you could probably find a nicer place for lunch in the city than paying just to go to the castle cafe. It had improved the last time we were there but I would not pay to go into the grounds just for lunch

Travel Tips for Stirling

Fishing the Lake of Menteith

by stevezero

Fishing is available on the lake of Menteith from motor powered boats. I believe it is trout that is fished for.
Even if you don't catch then the views are still spectacular!

Boats are available to hire from the Port of Menteith. about 18kms North West of Stirling

Doune Castle

by Skibbe

Just a short drive northwest of Stirling in the town of Doune, this is a well-preserved, relatively quiet 14th century castle whose claim to fame is more recent: it was the setting for scenes from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." That had a lot to do with me coming here and most others. You can go to the top and yell at "sons of silly persons" in your worst French accent and they'll even give you coconut shells at the ticket counter.

Island of Incmahome

by stevezero

Althogh Incmahome is best known for the priory, it is still a nice place to wander amidst the peace and tranquility of the island.
There are nise walks and wildlife to be seen.

Reached by boat from Port of Monteith
£3.50 - includes the abbey

All Dead

by zizkov

Just under the Castle, an escape is possible to the peace of the Valley Cemetery. In past times, apparently, the site of jousting tournaments, and markets.

The view is from the old Kirkyard with a memorial to the martyr Margaret of the Solway (I think) to the right and the Star Pyramid to the left. The Castle is behind.

Views from Stirling Castle

by lou31

This castle was as castles go 'very nice'. It had the most spectacular views in all directions. The day was fine except for a shower or two and the views of Stirling and the countryside were amazing. Everything was so green! Even if you aren't into castles it's worth going just to get some good photos.
I was intrigued by how high up we were. I'll have to find out what height the castle is. It's like looking down from an aeroplane.
