In Edinburgh, we took the excursion to Braveheart Country & Stirling Castle. The castle part of the tour was fascinating: we got to explore all the old buildings including the small palace built within the castle walls. It's interesting to imagine the kinds of people who used to live within those walls, and the kinds of lives they led. After the castle, we visited the Bannockburn Heritage Center, whose focus is the most decisive battles in Scotland's history (Robert the Bruce); the center uses a detailed lecture as well as a sort of 3D movie to immerse the visitor in the battles and illustrate how the period weapons were used. For one interested in military history, this could be fascinating; for us, the castle exploration was definitely of greater interest and I would recommend it. Read Less

Guide was pretty taciturn, but the castle itself was very cool.
Guide was pretty taciturn, but the castle itself was very cool. The Bannockburn battlefield was mostly just confusing, and he didn't help us much. Beautiful drive.

1/2 day excursion.
1/2 day excursion. Not enough time at Stirling Castle. Too rushed. Bannockburn battle centre was well worth the visit.

Had opportunity to tour the castle and grounds for 2 hours.
Had opportunity to tour the castle and grounds for 2 hours. The castle sits on a huge mesa and looks like I always thought a castle should. The grounds and adjoining cemetery were interesting too.
