Camping & Glamping Breaks in Stirlingshire with Cosy Outdoors
Located less than an hour from both Edinburgh and Glasgow, Stirling is an ideally situated staycation spot for those travelling from Scotland’s two biggest cities or further afield. Full of important history and quaint cobbled streets, the town is a fabulous destination for a weekend away, while the surrounding countryside offers ample opportunities for outdoor activities of all kinds.
Explore Stirling’s rich history
As you enter the town, two historical landmarks catch your eye immediately. Stirling Castle is one of the most important castles in the country, both when it comes to its history and its architecture. A multitude of Scotland’s kings and queens, including Mary Queen of Scotland, were crowned here, and the castle played an important role in the Wars of Independence and the Jacobite uprising. It’s a popular tourist destination and a must-visit for all interested in Scotland’s history.
Meanwhile, to the north of the city centre, you can see the Wallace Monument, erected there in memory of the legendary Scottish rebel and national hero, William Wallace. Each level of the tower tells a part of his story and the crown of the monument offers spectacular views over Loch Lomond, The Pentland Hills, Fife, and The Firth of Forth.
Experience the stunning nature of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs
The nature of Stirlingshire is just as impressive as its history. To appreciate it fully, take a trip out to the iconic Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, just half an hour from Stirling city centre. Here, you’ll have ample opportunities for watersports on the largest lake in Great Britain by surface area, hiking and mountain biking through mature oak woodlands, hillwalking with spectacular views and catching glimpses of porpoises, seals and a variety of seabirds.
