[The palace at Stirling Castle]

Stirling Castle is Stirling's crowning glory, at the top of the volcanic outcrop of Castle Hill and an short uphill walk from the city centre. Built in various stages from the 14th century onwards, the castle saw the crowning of a series of Scottish Kings and Queens, and several sieges during the Wars of Independence. Today, dozens of separate buildings, battlements and exhibitions justify the admittedly hefty admission charge. A tour of Argyll's Lodging is also included in the price, just downhill from the castle.
