What to Expect
Situated on the crest of a hill between the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands, Stirling Castle is one of the most impressive castles in Scotland, a source of national pride and intimately linked to the country’s fight for independence.

With this full-day entrance ticket you can skip the long lines to explore its treasures at your leisure. Highlights include the magnificent Great Hall, tranquil Queen Anne Gardens and the serene Chapel Royal, which dates back to 1594.

Step into a world of plots, passion, intrigue and high fashion as you learn about the people of the palace, such as James V, Mary Queen of Scots, and Regent Arran. Explore the sumptuous world of the Royal Court, highlighted by a 12 million pound project that has returned the 6 apartments in the castle’s Renaissance palace to how they may have looked in the mid-16th century.

Years of research were carried out by archaeologists, historians and other scholars to ensure that every detail - from the magnificent 4-poster beds to the heraldic decorations on the walls and ceilings - is as authentic as possible. Costumed performers in the role of nobles, guards, ladies-in-waiting, and Mary of Guise (mother of Mary, Queen of Scots), will help bring the experience to life.
