Stirling Activities & Things To Do

 

Why Stirling?

You’re trying to think of a place to go on holiday and you just happened to finish watching Braveheart. That all looked pretty impressive and maybe you thought seeing where he fought one of his famous battles would be a great choice. Welcome to Stirling, Scotland!

This historic location has events of the past and entertainment of the present that will leave you with fond memories of your trip. Landmarks of particular interest you’ll want to visit include Stirling Castle, the original home of the Scottish Parliament. You can see where Scottish hero King Robert the Bruce defeated the English army of King Edward III. Another amazing site to visit is the Stirling Town wall, one of the few and best surviving town walls in all of Scotland and you can see the work done on the wall from 1547 when it was fortified because of the pending attack of King Henry VIII. What brought you here in the first place is the National Wallace Monument. You’ll get your exercise climbing the 247 steps to the top but once you’re there, you’ll get to see the Scottish landscape in a new way and the view of nearby Stirling Bridge is where Wallace defeated the larger English army and solidified his place in history – and giving Mel Gibson something to do as well.

When to Come to Stirling

If you’re considering when the best time to visit is, that’s really up to you. As long as you aren’t expecting a tropical climate, there are seasons of the year that you can claim as your own. Many believe Spring is best because of the coolness of the air, occasional rain and the colours erupting all around you as the mountains and hills awaken from a Winter slumber.

Where to Stay

You’ll find a variety of options for lodging including Hotels, Hostels and Bed & Breakfasts.

How to get Here

Finding Stirling is relatively simple, you can take the train from Glasgow (50 minutes),an hourly non-stop coach from Glasgow and Edinburgh (40 minutes to an hour) or you drive by the M9/A9 to Edinburgh, Inverness and the M80 to Glasgow (check www.theaa.com for details).

Whats on in Striling

Local events you can plan for include the annual Callander Jazz and Blues Festival, the Doune and Dunblane Fling for a truly authentic experience of pipes, dancing and games. If you’re a reader of crime fiction, you’ll not want to miss Bloody Scotland, the international crime writing festival and if you make it to the 2014 event, author Kathy Reichs of “Bones” fame will be there along with David Hewson.

Show your appreciation for the troops at the Armed Forces Day National event recognizing the troops of the UK from past and present. Still thinking about Braveheart? Bonnockburn Live should be at the top of your list then. A two day event that will surround you in the rich history of Scotland and celebrate it’s food and music from both traditional and modern times.

When you’re out and about during the day, you might consider the Wild Biking tour which takes groups of four on a bike excursion of about 90 minutes for only about £12.50 or if walking is more your speed, the Walking Tours of Stirling will leave you in stitches and teach you about Stirling’s history with laughter & stories provided by local guides in full costume for £20 for families and £8 for adults.

If you want to get above it all and take in the entire view, Eagle Balloons has the largest fleet in the area and you can spend 3-4 hours looking at the countryside and enjoying champagne afterward.

What to do in the Evening

Afterhours entertainment has a variety of options including the Stirling Arcade, Borestone Bar with live entertainment and 2 Baker Street – a pub with live ceilidh bands, a Wednesday quiz night and very popular with tourists, locals and students.

 

We hope you’ve found a reason to visit Scotland other than that movie and after you’ve soared across the countryside in a balloon, tasted some of the fine Scotch and stood in the places that history was made in; you’ll be thinking Slàinte mhath in no time at all.
