The ancient town of Stirling in Scotland became a city during Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee celebrations in 2002. It has a long history and it is said that a wolf’s howls saved the people of Stirling from a Viking attack at night in the 8th century AD. William Wallace triumphed over the English forces at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297, and the Battle of Bannockburn (which took place near Stirling) was won by Robert the Bruce in 1314, thus ensuring Scotland’s independence from England. Stirling Castle towers over the river and is an impressive sight, and has a long history, with parts dating back to the 12th century, although it was rebuilt over the years. If you visit it, take care not to take a tumble or you might have more than a whiplash injury in Stirling to complain about.
