Stirling - the little Edinburgh

Stirling will delight you with its medieval old town with the highlight being the big Stirling Castle. Stirling is often compared to Edinburgh for its picturesque cobblestone streets and majestic castle overlooking the city. Part of the magic and uniqueness of the city lies in its history - here Braveheart came to life, William Wallace defeated the English at the Battle of the Stirling Bridge and Robert the Bruce won at the Battle of Bannockburn.
