Stirling Castle

I spent over 3 hours at Stirling Castle with a few of my friends in my masters program. We were impressed by the sheer size of the castle. It offers a variety of interactive modules such as – dress up in medieval regalia, games, instruments, movies, and impersonators. The castle has been owned by a myriad of hands and this influence is demonstrated architecturally.IMG_9398.JPG

The tapestries are impressive, and the unicorn decorations are a pleasant surprise.

If the weather is fair – go along the wall walk, a footpath that surrounds the parameter of the castle. The castle boasts many views of Stirling and the Wallace Monument. Cue my Game of Thrones reference, I felt very ‘watcher of the wall’ esque.
Unfortunately I paid full price of 14.50£, as there is no student discount. However, if you’re touring throughout many of Scotland’s heritage sites, I would recommend joining the Heritage Membership Program to save money.
