A Stirling Castle tour is very popular with visitors to Scotland and this is for good reason.
Stirling is sometimes described as “Edinburgh in miniature”
Moreover, some would argue far more important in Scottish history than the Capital.
As a result a sightseeing tour should be high on your Scotland tour itinerary.
In addition to being the most important castle in Scotland, it is also a must-see on your Scottish travels.
The Castle is a unique visitor experience and even more notably, voted the number one visitor attraction in the UK.
The small city of Stirling (population 95k) is situated perfectly. Edinburgh is an hour to the east and Glasgow to the West.
Sightseeing tours from Edinburgh & Glasgow contribute to visitor numbers at Stirling Castle year round,
To the north, the market town of Perth and beautiful highland Perthshire.
The Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park is close by. Scotlands first National Park, officially opening in 2002 attracts thousands of visitors each year.
