When visiting Scotland and Stirling its essential to make a visit to Stirling
Castle. Its location rivals even Edinburgh's Castle for sheer
magnificence as it sits on its high volcanic rock, visible for many miles
in every direction. The Castle is in the care of Historic Scotland and
is open to the public all year round. A site as important as the castle
rock at Stirling, guarding as it does the lowest crossing point of the
River Forth, would have been of strategic interest to anyone wanting to
control central Scotland. And it is sadly only an attractive theory that
the legend of Camelot is based on a castle here during King Arthur's conquest
of parts of Scotland in the 6th Century. During a long and bloody history
Stirling Castle has been attacked or besieged at least 16 times. Three
battles have been fought in its immediate vicinity, two of which were
turning points in Scottish history.
WILLIAM WALLACE began a war campaign against the English
after Edward I invaded Scotland in 1296, when the historic war of Independence
began. The monument is on the Abbey Craig, a rocky crag from which William
Wallace and his men watched the English army gathered on the South side
of Stirling Bridge. This historic monument
has 246 steps take you to the top, and there are three chambers where
you can stop for breath during your climb.

struggle to free Scotland from English rule. In the Scottish Hall of Heroes
