The Forth Bridges
We drive through the town of South Queensferry and stop to take in the views across the River Forth and the three bridges, including the iconic cantilever railway bridge opened in 1890.
From here we drive the short distance to Linlithgow and Linlithgow Palace, home to the Scottish monarchy in the 15th and 16th century and birthplace of Mary Queen Of Scots. After exploring the ruins we drive towards Stirling
We’ll call for a short stop at The Pineapple, a unique and quirky mid-Georgian building that formed the centrepiece of one of Scotland’s largest glasshouses.
As we arrive at Stirling we see Stirling Castle sitting on an imposing volcanic plug overlooking the Carse Of Stirling. Driving up the cobbled streets to the castle we will understand why the castle and the town held such importance in historic Scotland. The views from the castle ramparts across the Carse of Stirling towards the Wallace Monument are outstanding.
