Full description
Skip the lines to enter Scotland’s second-most-popular tourist attraction as you learn about the bloody history including stories of the kings, queens, and ghost of this castle. Your tour will begin on the esplanade of the castle as you hear your guide talking about the origins of the castle and its sieges. Stirling grew in relation to Scottish history, as did the castle. This castle however suffered numerous sieges, which is the reason why this stronghold became a stage for crucial moments for Scotland.

It was key in the Scottish Wars of Independence of the 14th century, where heroes like William Wallace and Robert the Bruce took part. It served as a royal residence for centuries, and was the favorite for many kings. Your guide will take you inside the castle to visit the royal palace, where kings and queens once lived. This building was the first renaissance palace in Britain, and you will explore the Great Hall where feasts were held to celebrated the baptism of the future king of Scotland.

In the 16th century, John Damian was the bird-man of Stirling castle. He wanted to fly to France, but a couple of minor inconveniences deterred him from getting too far. Today, this fortress is full of history, legends, and maybe even some ghosts. In addition, the English chronicler William of Worcester identified Stirling Castle as the home of the Knights of the Round Table of King Arthur.
