Lesley Gordon welcomes you to Glendale Cottage, Self Catering Accommodation in Stirling
The City of Stirling, known as the brooch of Scotland, provides the perfect holiday base offering a combination of vibrant city life, with proximity to Scotland's first National Park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs - some of the most spectacular countryside in Scotland.
From its rocky crag overlooking the Forth Valley - the site of seven great battles -Stirling Castle is surely one of Scotland's grandest attractions. Little wonder that, after several Kings left their mark, the castle is an outstanding example of medieval and Renaissance architecture. Follow the gaze of the kings to survey the surrounding area that shaped Scotland's history. William Wallace won a spectacular victory over the English at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. Discover his tactics at the dramatic National Wallace Monument, home to his massive two-handed broadsword.
Stirling is also Scotland's newest City with a wide variety of shops, restaurants and cafes. Whatever your taste and budget, you will find the perfect souvenir whether from the antique shops and galleries or from the more contemporary Thistle Marches shopping center. Stirling also offers a thriving cultural and arts scene with such venues as the Tollbooth Tavern in the "old town", the Changing Rooms in the Crawford Arcade and the Mac Robert Center based in Stirling University campus, which is know also home to the Scottish Institution of Sport.
Stirling is also within an easy commutable distance from Scotland's capital, Edinburgh,with cities Glasgow & Perth, close by.
