Stirling

scotland084-uStirling is a city in central Scotland. The city was built around a large fortress and medieval old town.

Top of the Town consists of Broad Street, Castle Wynd, Ballengeich Pass, Lower Castle Hill Road, Darnley Street, Baker Street and St Mary’s Wynd. These streets all lead up to Stirling Castle and are very popular with tourists who stop off at the Old Town Jail, Mar’s Wark, Argyll’s Lodging and the castle. Ballengeich Pass leads to the graveyard at Ballengeich. The Top of the Town from Broad Street upwards is renowned for its cobble-stoned roads. Craft shops and tourist-focused shops line the streets on the way up and once at the top, panoramic views are available across Stirling and beyond.

Stirling Castle is one of the largest and most important castles, both historically and architecturally, in Scotland. The castle sits at the top of Castle Hill. Most of the buildings within and around the castle date from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Stirling Castle is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and is now a major tourist attraction.
