Stirling is a wonderful town to visit. Its central location in Scotland on the river Forth makes it a holiday venue with historic sites galore, scenic drives on the doorstep and of course you can savour traditional Scottish entertainment and cuisine in Stirling by day and by night. Excellent Trossachs B&B within 12 m.
The location of Stirling on the River Forth at the first point at which it could be forded or bridged made it strategically important in Scotland's long history of unrest and invasion. That same location has made it strategically important to the tourist industry and to anyone wishing to get an instant flavour of Scotland. Many of the important buildings in the older part of the town have been preserved, either by accident or by intent to make it a fascinating place for those with an interest in history. The splendid situation of Stirling Castle on its magnificent volcanic rock make it a wonderful place to get your first view of the highland hills. The location at one of Scotland's main crossroads makes it a great base from which to explore the rest of Scotland.
It is beyond the scope of this article to explore the whole of Scotland for you - that is best left to greater minds than mine. What I would like to achieve in these few short pages is to provide a brief description of Stirling's main attractions and then to explore the area immediately accessible from Stirling.
