Gateway to history and Scotland’s beautiful countryside
Stirling has rich in history virtue of its strategic position in the heart of Scotland and as the gateway to the highlands. Today this position makes Stirling the ideal base for exploring much of Scotland. With easy access to both Edinburgh and Glasgow as well as the southern and western Highlands, many of our overseas guests reflect that they wished they had spent longer in Stirling rather than spending time packing and unpacking as they move location.
We are happy to recommend tour guides to make the most of your time in Stirling. If you are happy to organise your own activities we recommend the Stirling section of the Visit Scotland website or the Visit Stirling website.
