Stirling Castle

There are many castles in Scotland and each hold their own significance and grandness, but Stirling Castle really is pretty special thanks to its imposing position which has always gave it great strategic importance and with it being at the centre of the Wars of Scottish Independence, Its links to both William Wallace and Robert the Bruce contributes to its legendary status.

Dunblane Cathedral

One of Scotland’s noblest medieval churches. The lower part of the tower is Romanesque, but the larger part of the building is of the 13th century.

Since it’s #Stirlinghour tonight on Twitter between 9-10pm, we have decided to illustrate why we at SearchScotland.ORG love the area so much. We hope to do this every week highlighting a different theme, this week’s being the area’s “Wars of Independence” history.

A Visit to the Blairdrummond Safari Park

On Saturday the 2nd of July we headed to the Blairdrummond Safari Park near Stirling. We went because of my daughter’s 5th birthday and we couldn't have picked a better day, the weather was glorious. The only problem with it being so lovely were the crowds, but after the initial kerfuffle at the entrance, we soon forgot all about it.
