Built at the point where the Scottish Highlands meet the Lowlands, Stirling Castle has long been an important tactical point for those seeking to take control of Scotland - be it rival Scottish monarchs or the English army. As a fortress and one of the key palaces of the Scottish court, the castle was home to famous royals including James VI (James I of England) and Mary Queen of Scots and combines Stuart luxury with military hardiness.
