 Stirling castle.

There are many historic buildings in Stirling, including the famous Stirling Castle, which is located in the heart of the city. There are also many museums, cobblestoned paths, markets, old traditional pubs, antiques shops, and churches.

Hostels in Stirling are generally of a high standard, and include all the usual hostel facilities such as hot water showers, private and dorm rooms, complimentary Wi-Fi, book exchange, and communal areas. Some hostels in Stirling provide complimentary car parking; this is something worth checking with the hostel before booking, as parking can be quite expensive. If you're looking to travel to Scotland during the winter months (November through January), it is worth looking for a hostel that has central heating and double-glazed windows, as it can get extremely cold, icy, and wet in Stirling. Snow is not uncommon during these months, so if you're driving, check the weather conditions, and plan for sudden road closures and detours. It is also recommended driving with a up-to-date GPS, as some parts of the city center run on a one-way road system, which can be frustrating when looking for specific street addresses.

Most Stirling hostels and bed and breakfasts (B&B) includes a complimentary traditional full Scottish breakfast, which includes toast, black pudding, bacon, fried tomatoes and mushrooms, baked beans, and sausages. If breakfast is not included, then there is usually a communal kitchen for guest use. Stirling also has many good local pubs and restaurants, which serve both international and local traditional food. There are also many supermarkets, mini-marts, and local fruit and vegetable markets here, within walking distance of most Sirling hostels.
