    Stirling Castle

    Favorite thing: The Stirling Castle is one of the largest and most important Scotland castles. I visited this Castle in May of 2004 on the way from Darlington to Edinburgh. We spent two hours there and were impressed by its historical and architectural value.
    The castle sits atop Castle Hill, an intrusive crag, which forms part of the Stirling Sill geological formation. We spent two hours there and I must say it is worth visiting for sure.

    Stirling Countryside from on high

    Favorite thing: Stirling is a small town but she did achieve City Status during Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee Celebrations. Known as the Broch of Scotland Stirling claspes the Highland's and Lowlands together. The finest sights of Ben Lomond, the Trossachs, Forth Valley and the Ochil and Pentland hills are best viewed from high points such as Abbey Craig and the ramparts of Stirling Castle. The landscape around Stirling where once great battles were fought now holds peaceful serenity it is truely stunning.

    Daffodils

    Daffodils
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: If you are arriving by road from the south in springtime, you may see this fine display of daffodils by the dual carriageway, about a mile from the city centre.

    When they are in bloom, I always think it is the sign that spring is really here.

    Stirling Castle Detail

    Favorite thing: I have a great love for Stirling Castle, although I couldnt tell you facts and figures about it, it is just the feel and look of the castle that touches me somehow. I can never get tired of visiting it, or the area around. Each time I go, I see something else that catches my eye. This is one of the details of the gargoyles of the castle. If I remember correctly, this was King James (the 6th, I think), but I could be wrong on that fact.

    Stirling Castle

    Favorite thing: If you are Stirling for a short trip, a good way to get about is to take the Stirling Tour.

    The coach will stop at fixed points, and covers most of the important sights which should not be missed.

    Adults £7.50
    Senior Citizens
    Students £6.00

    Snow on the hills

    Ochil Hills from south

    Favorite thing: The weather you might see if you visit in winter (or, occasionally, summer). And when there may not be snow in Stirling, you may still see it on the Ochils, or the Southern Highlands.
