' So let us pass ... to the ports of Sterling ; where stands a beautiful and embellished Castle, elevated on the precipice of an impregnable rock , that commands the vallies ( as well as the town ) and all those habitable parts about it ... '- Richard Franck , Northern Memoirs , 1656

It has been said that whoever controlled Stirling castle controlled Scotland because of its strategic position.A Roman Fort, built on castle rock, was replaced by a new castle at the command of King Alexander I.At the end of the 13th century the castle was rebuilt in stone , because of its strategic importance and the protection it offered.

In 1297 the Scottish forces of William Wallace gathered at Stirling Bridge , in front of the castle ,and overcame the English in the most notorious defeat ever suffered by an English army. In 1313 Edward Bruce (brother of the would-be Scottish King) blockaded the fortress and forced King Edward II to meet King Robert The Bruce's forces at Bannockburn. The heavily outnumbered Scottish forces inflicted a stunning defeat upon the English and the castle was surrendered to King Robert.

In 1452 Stirling was the site of the murder of William, 8th Earl of Douglas by King James II. A stained glass window bearing the Douglas Arms now overlooks "Douglas Garden." 

On the 9th of September 1543, the infant Mary , Queen of Scots , born in nearby Linlithgow Palace ,was crowned in the chapel royal at Stirling.

There are supposed to be over 1000 ghosts in Stirling Castle , the most famous of all being the Green Lady.
