Photo - Tolbooth

Located in the heart of the old town, the Tolbooth is Stirling's venue for live music and the arts. Re-opened in 2002, after a sensational restoration and redesign by award winning architect Richard Murphy, the Tolbooth has quickly established a reputation as one of the best live music venues in the country. The Tolbooth has always been a feature of Stirling\'s cultural life, it has been a court and jail (complete with death cells) and hosted a parliament in the reign of James VI. Nowadays the Tolbooth is the base for Stirling Council\'s Arts and Event Team and the home to some of the best musicians and performers working in Scotland. The Tolbooth organise a year round performance program, courses and classes, an arts development programme across the whole area

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.
