Mighty fortresses to ancient ruins
The magnificent Stirling Castle dominates the view for miles around. Up close, it is one of the UK’s finest castles, steeped in history and full of surprises. The castle is also home to Regimental Museum of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. On a smaller scale, Doune Castle is a magnificent example of a courtyard castle dating from the 14th century. In more recent history, it was a location in Monty Python’s Holy Grail. In a neat touch, the audio tour of the castle is narrated by Terry Jones of the Python team.
