Stirling Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


The modern town of Stirling stands on the alluvial plains of the Forth, laid out around and upon a steep rocky outcrop, topped by the town’s castle and historic old centre. Given its central location, Stirling has always played a strategic role in Scots affairs, and the town's long, eventful history is inextricably linked to that of its famous castle, a former royal residence. Today, this dynamic tourist centre offers numerous alternative day trips into the surrounding countryside.
