If you are looking for a vacation which combines the attractions of the city with glorious scenery, historical sites and the pleasures of golf, then Stirling is the place to go. From the north of the city of Stirling, can be seen the many hills and mountains which mark the beginning of the Highlands, whilst to the west and east, one of the flattest expanses of land in the whole of Scotland extends. The city itself has a magnificent castle which sits atop a high volcanic rock, and the streets which lead up to it are a favorite haunt for tourists, many of whom stop to enjoy a visit to the old town jail on the way. Away from the city, a visit to the stunning Falls of Dochart at the village of Killin is not to be missed. As you enter the village, you cannot fail to spot the cascading waters of the River Dochart as they cascade around the island of Inchbuie, the traditional burial place of the MacNab clan. Whatever you do, do not forget your camera! Historic Bannockburn, site of one of the most significant battles of the 13th/14th century wars of independence between Scotland and England, is another of the area’s not-to-be-missed locations. Known the world over, the Gleneagles and St Andrew’s Golf Clubs need no introduction, whether you are a player or not, and both of these celebrated courses are within easy driving distance of your hotel in Stirling.
