There’s more than ever to see and do at Stirling Castle. The Royal Palace, which was the childhood home of Mary Queen of Scots, has been returned to its Renaissance
magnificence. Visitors will be met by costumed characters in the roles of royalty, bodyguards and servants who give insights into the Stewart royal court. The Castle Exhibition focuses on the fascinating archaeology discovered during the palace refurbishment and younger visitors can get hands on with history in the Palace Vaults, where they can try on period costume and play medieval instruments. Visitors can explore the Great Hall, Chapel Royal, Kitchens and Regimental Museum.
