Visitors can look out from its high stone walls to the battlefields of Stirling Bridge where great medieval armies clashed to decide the fate of nations. Home to generations of Scottish monarchs including, Mary Queen of Scots, the Castle is an enduring and powerful reminder of our fascinating history. « less

Kids love running around,the special games, dressing up and special kids tours. A beautiful castle, with spectacular scenery and kitchen and palace make you feel like you entered another age. One word, spectacular!

Stirling castle is brilliant! I would recommend it to anyone. The whole family had tremendous fun and although there were gale force winds, the views kept us on the ramps with our jaws hanging. Then we sought shelter in the cosy chambers of the palace and sat on the throne in the great hall. The replicas of furnishings were very... More

Stirling Castle is full of interesting and historical artefacts, it has great views over the surrounding countryside and you can just let your imagination take over, thinking about the old battles, Scots Kings and Queens. The Castle is also home to The Argyle & Sutherland Highlanders who have their regimental museum in the castle, well worth the visit.

Stirling castle is by far the best castle to visit in Scotland. With a history steeped treachery, treason and all the bloody gore of the Scottish struggle for independence you and your family will not be disappointed. Historic Scotland have done a brilliant job of restoring the palace and costumed characters really add to the occasion. A perfect day out... More

If your only going to visit one castle in Scotland then make it Stirling. More history, less museum and the views of Wallace Monument and the Ochil Hills are magnificent.

This venue gets better and better. Something new is added each time we visit. It appeals to all ages and is steeped in history with information passed to the visitor at every turn. I particularly like the street theater of the actors who wander round telling a lot of the story of the Castle. They are well versed and seem... More

We had a great day - I took my aged parents and 11 year old. We were there for about 3 hours before my son started to twitch a bit, which is pretty good for an historic building trip. Walking along the walls and picnicking in the beautiful gardens, climbing on the canon and the view out to Wallace Monument... More

Staying just outside Falkirk & looking for something to do (after trying to get to the Kelpies at the Helix - don't ask!) we headed to Stirling Castle. After waiting a while to get into the car park as it was busy, we walked up to the ticket office & were a little stunned at the price but still decided... More
