Stirling is the crossroads, battlefield and interface of Scotland and England. The history soaked into this are is overwhelming and I found it quite emotional to visit during this present time of the runup to the devolution vote.

You can stay at Broomhall Castle at Menstries
Stirling Castle was awesome but take the time to see it all. Has been restored beautifully and sympathetically. Smaller but good alternative (also slightly cheaper and more accessible) than Edinburgh Castle. MUST SEE: Tapestry workshop.
Loads of castles within short driving distance including Doune (Monty Python and the Holy Grail)

We had difficulty getting to the hotel,as our directions brought us in at the wrong end of King Street - No entry,as it is now a one-way street!! As we were going round in circles,we stopped to ask a" lollipop-man"for advice on how we could reach the hotel,which we could see but couldn't get to.The THIRD time we spoke to him he suggested we ignore the NO ENTRY sign -well we maybe could have done that,but police car was at bottom of road!!! Finally we asked a chap standing outside a pub how to get to the hotel car park,he and his pal were both extremely helpful with their directions and finally we made it to our destination!!

How is tourism changing Stirling?

There is no tourism in Stirling because so it seems, the city does not provide any attractions but the castle for which there is no need to stay an overnight in Stirling. Pitty. A few years ago we had a wonderful Old Jail tour (closed), wonderful restaurant - in fact the best I ever eaten (Olivia - also closed), and a walk thru old town window shopping and buying the next day.
Today, you have a huge shopping mall instead, and lots of foreign shops downtown (from Kebab to China-Sh*t) - for this, you do not need Stirling.
