We knew we had to see Stirling castle while we were in Edinburgh, so we added a tour of Stirling to our day trip. So glad we did. We had no idea about all the rich history of Stirling!! There was so much to see and Jane was a wonderful and fun guide.

Jayne was our tour guide and she was fantastic so much information and knowledge everything you wanted to know and more she was so interesting to listen to and told us everything you wanted to know about the history of Stirling. Every section of the tour was explained in so much detail explaining what happened in market place torcher, hanging ect,and symbols above houses what they ment and who lived where from churches to the grave yard which I found so fascinating and interesting. The information on the battle at Stirling bridge and William Wallace and so much more plus information on Robert the Bruce which was so interesting to so much that when we got home had to watch Brave heart. But Jayne herself was such a lovely lady I could of listened to her all day the time just flew by she just captures the essence of Stirling and her knowledge is Stirling is unbelievable.
