What you'll do

Get to know the royal town of Stirling, one of Scotland's most historically fascinating cities, like a local, as you explore medieval ruins, old pubs and magical castles on your own private tour.

The tour begins when your private transport arrives to pick you up from Stirling train station at around 9:30 am, or from any B&Bs or hotel in the town.

From there, enjoy a relaxed, bespoke tour of this historic city with two local guides, absolutely passionate about showing you the best of their home. You’ll start by visiting the impressive Stirling Castle, built for Scottish royalty and home to hundreds of fascinating stories of intrigue.

Explore the castle gardens before heading to the characterful Old Town, all the while learning about what life was once like when Stirling was a focal point for the civil war between the English and the Scottish.

Then, cross the river to explore the ruins of a well-preserved medieval abbey, and pay respects to the Scottish kings and queens buried there. Of course, no historical tour of Stirling would be complete without hearing the tale of William Wallace, which you’ll hear from the fitting location of a panoramic viewpoint which looks down on the site of his most famous victory.

Depending on what you fancy at the time, you’ll then finish the day with the choice either sinking a few drams at a local whisky bar, heading for a gin tasting and distillery tour, or sipping a pint of ale at the oldest pub in Stirling.

This is a tour that doesn’t only focus on glories-past, but also shows you the lively, vibrant community that exists in Stirling today, so come and learn what it’s like to live in Stirling like a local!
