School trip to Stirling
The Gateway to the Highlands

Impressive nature and very friendly people – that’s Scotland. In 2015 this important part of the United Kingdom almost voted to become an independent country. Stirling is the gateway to the Scottish Highlands. Important landmarks like the Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle and Bannockburn Heritage Centre remind us of the heroes of Scotland’s yesteryear. Many historical treasures, old rituals and modern lively cities can be discovered on a school trip to Stirling.

After you have seen London and the South of England, a school trip to Scotland is a must. A study trip to Stirling, Edinburgh or Perth is recommended for students of 15 years and older. Topics and excursions can be prepared in advance.

Free Educational Visits are offered by Historic Scotland and offer school groups free entrance for many sights. Advance booking is essential!
