Stirling Castle
Sitting on an 80m high, volcanic plug, children will be fascinated by a visit to Scotland's finest castle. The Visitor Centre on the Esplanade has an educational and entertaining free video show which is screened throughout the day. Hundreds of years of Scottish history is a lot to absorb but there are plenty of spaces for children to run around or relax. They will love the recreation of a Medieval kitchen and there is a Medieval themed soft-play area for the under-5's.

Castle Campbell and Dollar Glen
The castle used to be known as Castle Gloom and is situated above two burns named Care and Sorrow. There are spectacular walks by both burns as they twist and cascade down narrow ravines. Take great care with young children after heavy rain and in Autumn as the paths, walkways and bridges can be slippery.
No disabled access to the walk.
