What to Expect
If you are staying in Edinburgh or visiting Scotland then a trip to Stirling has to be near the top of any must-see list.  On this private tour, your local guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel in or around Edinburgh and take you on the 1-hour drive to Stirling.

Of course the main attraction in Stirling is the famous Stirling Castle. Cross the threshold into the Castle’s Royal Palace and enter an exciting world of plots, passion and intrigue with our costumed performers. A new exhibition focuses on some of the the Castle’s fascinating archaeology including the Stirling skeletons. There’s also lots for younger visitors including dress-up, musical instruments and games, as well as our new Children’s Tour – History Hunters. Other highlights include the Great Hall, Chapel Royal, Regimental Museum, the great kitchens and tapestry studio.

However, the most iconic landmark in Stirling is the National Wallace Monument,commemorating the life of Sir William Wallace and overlooking the scene of his greatest victory, at the Battle of Stirling Bridge, in 1297.

Inside the Monument you can visit the Hall of Arms to learn the story of how the Battle of Stirling Bridge was fought and won, with an illuminated map showing exactly where the events of 11th September 1297 took place. Then climb to The Hall of Heroes to hear  the story of Wallace’s life – and of how he came to be acclaimed as a national hero. The striking centrepiece on this floor is the Wallace sword, a powerful symbol of his courage and skill, presented on stone quarried from the Abbey Criag when the Monument was being built. The Royal Chamber is where you can uncover some of the facts and figures behind the building of this Victorian masterpiece, now recognised and admired as a national landmark.

When you reach The Crown at the top of The Monument the view will take your breath away.

It’s one of the finest sights Scotland has to offer, from Ben Lomond and The Trossachs in the West, and through The Forth Valley past the city of Stirling and The Ochil Hills to The Pentland Hills in the East.

At the end of a great day, we will bring you back to your hotel.
