Stirling, Scotland’s newest city is also one of its oldest, and this fact somehow encapsulates its essence. Central to Scotland’s story, it wears its history well; the magnificent castle dominating the view for miles around. But it is also a modern university town, with a vibrant cultural life, excellent shopping, and numerous highly recommended restaurants. We recommend a visit to the National Wallace Monument which stands tall and proud outside the city of Stirling, and overlooking the scene of Scotland’s victory at The Battle of Stirling Bridge.
A 35 minute drive from Strathyre, it’s a day trip that’s sure to become one of your favourite holiday memories.
