Stirling Castle

Discover a majestic place where history comes to life, a place of power, beauty and history, and the favoured residence of Scotland’s Kings and Queens.

Knights, nobles and foreign ambassadors once flocked to the Royal Court at Stirling Castle to revel in the castle’s grandeur with its superb sculptures and beautiful gardens. The Stewart kings and queens hosted banquets to celebrate great events from christenings to coronations.
At the heart of the castle was the wonderful Renaissance palace of James V. Today the palace has been returned to its renaissance splendour and is at the centre of the vistor experience with its stunning apartments and costumed characters.
