Stirling Castle

Steeped in history, Stirling Castle dates back to the early 12th century. Several Scottish monarchs were crowned there, including Mary Queen of Scots in 1542, and it was one of the most-used royal residences in the country. Explore the rooms, gardens, tapestries, vaults and much more. Open seven days a week – advance booking recommended.

Stirling Distillery

Founded in 2015 by June and Cameron McCann, the distillery produces Stirling Gin, which proved so popular it’s now a nationally recognised spirit. Enjoy gin tours and tastings, cocktail masterclasses, and seasonal events. Whisky production is now underway too, with the first whisky due for release in 2027!

The National Wallace Monument

This famous landmark commemorates the spot where William Wallace led his troops to victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge. As you climb the monument, you can explore various rooms to discover Wallace’s extraordinary story. At the top you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views across Scotland’s historic heartland.

Cambuskenneth Abbey

Nestled in the shadow of Stirling Castle is the lesser-known Cambuskenneth Abbey, founded in the 12th century by King David I. It’s a site of great historical interest, with Robert the Bruce holding parliament there in the 1300s, as well as the resting place of James III and his wife Queen Margaret.

Just outside Stirling, Blair Drummond has 160 acres of family fun! Meet the animals and learn some fascinating facts about them at a zookeeper talk. Explore one of the UK’s best dinosaur attractions, run wild in the giant outdoor play area and get up close and personal with lions, rhinos and more!
