    Stirling Castle is located in Stirling, on top of the Castle Crag. The western face of the rock drops 80m down, but the site is naturally well defended form three sides. Historically, the castle guarded a desirable crossing on the river Forth and effectively, the access to the Highlands from the south.

It was a favourite residence of the Stuarts in 16th and 17th centuries. The castle is approached via fortifications of the Forework: the Gatehouse, the curtain wall, ditch and several towers. Majority of the important buildings inside the walls date from the 15th and 16th centuries. The most important ones are located around the Upper Square: the Palace, The Great Hall, built as venue for state occasions, the Chapel, and King's Old Building. Other attractions include the basement Great Kitchens, the Nether Bailey and the Tapestry Studio. There is a cafe, a bookshop, a gift shop and a whisky shop. Admission: Adult £9 (10 Euros), Child £4.50 (5 Euros). Opens 9.30, closes 6pm in summer (Apr-Sep)
