The Royal Palace
Restored to its Renaissance magnificence, the Royal Palace of James V is the jewel in Stirling Castle’s crown. Visitors can view the King and Queen’s apartments, see the famous Stirling Heads and come face to face with characters from the 16th century Stewart Court.
The Great Hall
James IV’s Great Hall, the largest ever built in Scotland, was complete in 1503 as a splendid venue for courtly celebrations and occasions of state.
The Chapel Royal was built by James VI in 1594 for the baptism of his son Henry. An elaborate frieze added for Charles I in late 1620s still survives.
The Regimental Museum of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders is full of fascinating displays telling the story of the Regiment from its beginnings in the 1800s through to present day.
The Great Kitchens
Built during James IV’s reign to prepare banquets for his Great Hall, the Kitchens have been reconstructed to show the cooks at work producing a feast.
