Central Scotland

Where to Stay

Originally a Stone Age Settlement, and a former capital of the Kingdom of Scotland, Stirling was a royal burgh until 1975. The city is clustered around a medieval old-town and dominated by its impressive castle, perched on a 250 foot basalt rock.

Perth was the historic capital of the Kingdom of Scotland, until the mid-15th century. The most popular architectural and historical attraction, Scone Palace, lies on the outskirts, and the surrounding countryside is wonderful for strolling and hiking.

Nicknamed the `home of golf` as it is the seat where the rules of golf in Britain and the world are codified and arbitrated. Golf was played for the first time in the 1400s, on the site of St. Andrews`s Old Course. The medieval town of St. Andrews was also the center of Scotland`s religious life for centuries. It offers courses ranked amongst the finest in the world, as well as sandy beaches.

A Victorian town which blossomed when Queen Victoria declared it one of the finest resorts in Europe. It offers two whisky distilleries: Edradour, billed as the smallest distillery in Scotland, and Blair Atholl Distillery, which dates back to 1798. A good base for touring the Valley of the Tummel.

The largest of Scotland`s lochs was the center of the ancient district of Lennox. It contains a large number of islands including Inchmurrin, the largest island, where the ruins of Lennox Castle and some ecclesiastical ruins are located. Today, the loch is also well known for the Loch Lomond Golf Club which lies next to it.

WHY CENTRAL SCOTLAND?

Central Scotland covers the dramatic regions of Stirling and the Troussards (Trossachs), Perthshire, and Fife. The mainland strip, north of the crowded Glasgow-Edinburgh urban area, and south of the principle swathe of Highlands, showcases the country's splendor. Replete with steely blue lochs reflecting soaring, fortress-like craggy peaks, ancient woodlands, and serving as the backdrop to some of the most important events in Scottish history; visitors can relax with a drink in any of the innumerable long-established pubs after an exhausting day spent exploring the region.

Significant ruins and castles are built upon the sandy soils of Central Scotland, remaining sentinels of the deeply rooted, notorious, Scottish pride. Along with tourist favorites Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument, and Cambuskenneth Abbey, the area extends to the majestic Troussards, full of archetypal Scottish scenery. The green pine forests, and the shores of Loch Lomond, inspired great writer Sir Walter Scott to pen his celebrated poem 'The Lady of the Lake.' This wild paradise forms the base of Scotland's first national park, popular for walking, mountaineering, wildlife safaris, and, in particular, cycling. The area also includes the small, tranquil towns of Strathyre, Dunblane, Balquhidder, and the coastal towns of Argyll, Bute, Inveraray, Bowmore, Campbeltown, Garelochhead, and Dunoon.
