• Stirling Castle
• The Church of the Holy Rude
• Stirling Cemetery
• Old Town Jail
and many more hidden gems too!

Great to hear a lot of fantastic stories about the people of the city and its history from a very welcoming host. Jane had gone out of her way to learn more about the stories with a few personal twist in the grave yard.
