“It’s nice but not as nice as the castle in Edinburgh”. A cold but accurate review. To be clear it’s absolutely worth the trip. Classic Scottish castle with tons of history, good exhibits and good stories, just not quite as much as in Edinburgh. James V’s decorations of the palace are the heart of the displays. Not a far drive - worth the trip.

We were visiting friends in Stirling who thought Stirling Castle would be a good day trip for us all on Easter Sunday.

We were not disappointed, the castle itself is stunning and kept 4 adults and 4 kids ranging from 3 to 10 engaged all day. There were archery displays and lots of actors to keep everyone entertained and the land train that Stirling town put on was a godsend.

We parked at the bottom of the hill, in town, and hopped on board for the long trip up to the castle.

We had a great day and really enjoyed the history. The views are to die for and, as a family, we've fallen in love with Scotland.

Due to limited parking get the early. The castle is mostly restored and extremely interesting to both adults and kids alike. Incredible views surround it and the actors (and guides) really bring it to life. Make sure you have plenty of time to spend at it is easy to get lost.

Lovely place with lots of beautiful things to see . The castle has an interesting story which can be heard ( a part of it) from people in authentic clothes . They were funny and lovely especially the lady in the queen's room.
Beautiful decorations on the ceiling and you can also sit on the throne of the king ( If you dare).
Beautiful tapestry and unicorns everywhere as it is one of the castle's symbol's.
Only the weather was a bit chilly but everything else was fabulous.
A must see for historical place lovers.

The castle itself is breathtakingly beautiful. So many corners to discover and a piece of art and history in Scotland one should definitely see. The entrance was a little more on the pricier side and you should definitely bring quite some time to see everything (3h or more would be best). The staff is friendly and the view amazing.
