Our luxury hotel in Sterling is at the heart of Central Scotland. Its history puts it right at the centre of Scotland's story. Stirling Castle's the best place to begin, with its tales of kings, queens, sieges, back stabbing and glory. Home of the Stuart Kings and Mary Queen of Scots, it's not to be missed. Close to the castle is the site of Bannockburn, Scotland's most celebrated battle. The heritage centre tells its story. Then you can go on to meet the real Braveheart at the National Wallace Monument.
