Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle, and the city that it looms over, played a large part in the history of Scotland.  It was the principal residence of the medieval Scottish Kings, and the important Battle of Stirling Bridge took place near here in 1297.

The Scots have been fighting the English for their independence for as long as the two nations have occupied the same island.  The battle continues to this day, though the English continue to hold the upper hand
