In March 2002 Stirling became Scotland's sixth city in celebration of the Queen's Golden Jubilee. The City stands in a strategically important position, at the lowest ancient crossing point of the River Forth. There is evidence of a fortress at Stirling as far back as prehistoric times, guarding the passage between the lowlands and highlands. Whoever controlled the fortress effectively controlled Scotland.

Because of this, much of Scotland's history has been played out in or around Stirling. During the 1200s and 1300s control was wrested from the English, then lost: before being regained after the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. It was at Stirling Castle, between the 1400s and 1600s that the Stuarts chose to make their home and it was where Mary Queen of Scots was crowned in 1543. In the 1700s Stirling once more became strategically important during the Jacobite rebellions. See our Historical Timeline.

Today, Stirling Castle dominates the skyline of the city and is an impressive place to visit. It sits upon a great crag with Stirling laid out below it. Views from the castle esplanade are excellent, most notably of the Wallace Monument and of the craggy outline of Dumyat and the Ochils beyond. In the old town are the Church of the Holy Rude and Old Town Jail. Both welcome visitors. Also of interest is Argyll's Lodging, dating in part from the early 1500s, but now restored to its 17th Century splendour, when it was an impressive town house. Just across the River Forth from Stirling are the remains of Cambuskenneth Abbey.

Exceptional home with a very warm welcome from Bob. Everything you could wish for when away from home. Walk in shower, good sized rooms and lovely kitchen if you want to cook. All amenities available. This home is close to the town and attractions in Stirling. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Stirling. Thank you Bob.

Charming Scottish cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed the cottage for a week Jly 8-15. Our host Bob was terrific. He communicated quickly with me as we prepared for the trip and was easy to find if we had a question while in Stirling. The cottage is very quiet, laid out well, spacious, well lit with great natural light from the windows and sky lights (private bedroom, large bath with tub and shower, kitchen and living room space) and extremely comfortable, it went beyond our expectations in terms of kitchen equipment and had everything to accommodate a full meal prep if necessary. We ate breakfast with tea and coffee every morning but chose to enjoy the small local restaurants and pubs for evening meals. The cottage is within walking distance of everything you need with the exception of a large grocery. The washer/dryer in the cottage is wonderful and allowed us to pack light and run a quick load mid week (laundry soap was provided). Stirling castle was close and wonderful, the surrounding area spectacular. We rented a car (in Stirling) to tour further afield and the parking space is just outside your private entrance to the cottage and included in your rental. Be sure you take time to relax and enjoy the back yard bistro table and chairs. Thank you Bob for going above and beyond, your tour advice and the lovely chats!

Amazing Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful unique well thought out flat. Clean spacious bathroom and comfortable bedroom. Kitchen small but well organized incl washer/dryer, dishwasher, convection microwave. The sunroom perfect for reading and conversatio with lovely garden views. Access to the garden, backyard and visits with our host ...priceless.

Walking distance to Stirling Castle and downtown. Used this as our base to explore the Trossachs and central Scotland. Our host provided invaluable information concerning the area and how best to explore it. He and his family were simply delightful. We hope to be back soon!

Situated in the prestigious residential Kings Park conservation area yet only a walk to all Stirling's main facilities.

Stirling city centre, Stirling Castle and Stirling golf course are all less than 300 meters from your front door.

Many things are on your door step yet there is ultra convenient road, rail and bus links, a car is not needed.

Edinburgh and Glasgow airports are on direct motorway links with the junction only two miles from our private off road parking.

Golf: Gleneagles-Golf at the Gleneagles® Hotel is a blend of natural experience and golfing adventure on three championship golf courses set in the splendour of the Perthshire hills in Scotland.

The golf courses were the inspiration of two of the world's most famous golfers, James Braid, five times winner of the Open Championship who designed the King's and Queen's, and Jack Nicklaus, Golfer of the 20th Century, who created the PGA Centenary Course.

Stirling-The course has one of golf’s most inspiring backdrops – the Old Town of Stirling, built on ancient volcanic slopes, crowned by the historic Castle rising above spectacular crags…and there are stunning views in all directions across Central Scotland, including the Ochil and Lomond Hills to the east, and across the Carse of Stirling, to the Trossachs and the Southern Highlands beyond.

Set in the old royal hunting grounds of the Kings Park, Stirling is a golf course of excellent quality and unique character – a golfing experience not to be missed….. Formed in 1869 the club celebrated its 140th year in 2009, aware of the Kings Park’s much longer association with the game of golf .

St Andrews- St Andrews Links, the Home of Golf, where the game has been nurtured and developed for 600 years. This is the official website of St Andrews Links Trust which manages the seven golf courses, including the Old Course, host of the 2010 Open Championship, that make up the largest public golf complex in Europe.

Ski: GLEN COE MOUNTAIN

Ski and Snowboard across 19 runs and 7 lifts - catering for skiers and boarders of all levels. Complete beginners can enjoy the gentle plateau runs while experts can experience the incredible variety of terrain. (Which includes the longest and steepest runs in Scotland)
