Scotland: More on Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle is quite a complex of buildings.  Something was first constructed on this crag before 1110.

William Wallace Monument across the valley.

The land surrounding this crag is very flat.

More views of the surrounding lands.

One can watch the enemies come from afar.  There were at least nine sieges of this castle.  The last one was Bonnie Prince Charlie - unsuccessful.

It was quite a fascinating place to explore for a day.
