... buildings of the castle date from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Several Scottish kings and Queens have been crowned at Stirling, including Mary Queen of Scotts in 1542.
Parts of the castle have recently been renovated. There are some magnificent tapestries on display and colourful ceiling details of carved coats of arms and other decoration. Various staff rein-act ...
