There's now more than ever to see and do at Stirling Castle. The Royal Palace, which was the childhood home of Mary Queen of Scots, has been returned to its Renaissance magnificence. Visitors wii be met by costumed characters in the roles of royalty, bodyguards and servants who give insights into the royal Stewart Court.Recommended for:

This beautiful castle is just outside of Edinburgh. If you are looking for a quick trip out of Edinburgh to see something a little different, Stirling Castle is a good choice.
Many bus tours based in Edinburgh offer this castle as part of a day tour package. The tour I was on also took us through Glasgow, on a scenic drive through the mountains, and on a boat tour of Loch Lomond.
My favorite part of this castle was the tapestry recreation project. In the back of the castle, there is a studio set up where several artists are re-weaving historically significant tapestries to hang in the castle. It is part of the Palace Project, which aims to return the ground floor of the castle to an authentically 1600's look.
I visited in 2009, and the project is supposed to be complete in summer 2011. I can't wait to go back and visit Stirling again when the project is complete.
As a castle enthusiast and craft geek, I highly recommend visiting this castle.Recommended for:
