A Heritage Site in Stirling

Wander around the atmospheric Holy Rude graveyard and you will see headstones which are hundreds of years old. The earliest dates from 1579. Many show the trade symbols and tools of trade of the person who is buried there. The rugged rock which rises South of the Valley is The Ladies\' Rock. This was a favourite vantage point for the ladies of the court to watch the Royal Tournaments in the Valley and the Kings Park. From here, you can enjoy panoramic views across to the Trossachs and Ben Lomond.

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.
