Museums and Art Galleries in StirlingThe River House Stirling
Stirling is most famous for the battle of Bannockburn but around the city are the sites of many battles fought from Roman times when southern invaders would drive the Scots into the hills North of Stirling that was land considered unconquerable and worthless. The city now has an interesting ancient quarter, the spectacular castle and the Wallace monument that are all worth visiting and also just outside the city the Blairgowrie wildlife park - Scotland's premier big animal wildlife zoo and adventure playground.
The major art gallery in Stirling is the Smith Art Gallery and Museum. The Bannockburn Heritage Centre has recently been greatly upgraded with audio-visual installations and much Scottish Nationalist hype. In addition to the Museums linked below there is also the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Museum.
