Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle is situated on top of Castle Hill in Stirling in the country of Scotland.

King Edward II of England led his large army to relieve the English garrison in Stirling Castle, which was besieged by King Robert I.

Robert, the Duke of Albany, the uncle of King James I, died on September 3rd, 1420 in Stirling Castle.

King James II in 1452 murdered William, the eighth Earl of Douglas at Stirling Castle by stabbing him in the neck.

King James IV had a royal chapel built at Stirling Castle.

Between 1538 to 1542, King James V had a palace built within Stirling Castle.
The palace was a lavish three-storey palace within the castle complex.
The palace contained apartments for King James V and Queen Mary (of Guise).

The Royal Presence Chamber had a ceiling that had one hundred carved oak heads.
The palace building's principal façade contains tall, elegant windows and niches. The niches hold sculptured figures.

Love this castle, visited it on a vacation from Edinburgh and really enjoyed the "real castle" feel of it (if you know what I mean )

I love it too. I went for a day trip from Edinburgh and walked uphill to the Castle. On our way, very near to the Castle, we visted Argyll townhouse, which we also liked.
Mary Stuart was crowned Queen in the castle's chapel.

I visited this castle a few years ago when my brother was at Stirling university. It's a beautiful castle, though it rained and rained the day we went.
