Stirling’s rich history
If you’re in search of history when staying at one of our Stirling campsites, there are many places of interest including the Church of the Holy Rude where James VI was crowned, and The National Wallace Monument. Offering spectacular views of the fields below where William Wallace led his troops to victory at The Battle of Stirling Bridge, the tower helps tell the story of Scotland’s national hero – a captivating tale spanning the 13th and 14th centuries.
Although there are many places to visit while staying at your campsite in Stirlingshire, no trip here would be complete without visiting Stirling Castle, which has been a leading player in Scotland's turbulent history for over 700 years. The castle overlooks the battlefields where Scotland's Wars of Independence were fought and won, and while stands out as a symbol of national pride, also sits atop an extinct volcano – 250ft high on Castle Hill.
