Steeped in history, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs and The Forth Valley is an area where battles raged and blood was shed, where kings fell and in their place, national heroes rose. From early Roman influences to Scottish conflicts with the English, step back in time at heritage sites and museums to discover more. Be inspired at Stirling Bridge where the heroic William Wallace famously led his inspired troops to defeat the English forces in the name of freedom. Although the bridge collapsed it has since been rebuilt near the spot of this historic victory. Standing proudly over the battlefield, the National Wallace Monument was erected to commemorate the life of this legendary figure. Climb its 246 steps to uncover the history of Scotland’s heroes, and in nearby Falkirk, visit the Faw Kirk burial ground for the only known marked graves of Wallace’s followers. Wallace’s successor, Robert the Bruce, led the battle against the English at Bannockburn in June 1314, just south of Stirling. Bruce’s men drove King Edward II’s army homewards, marking a significant milestone in the Scottish Wars of Independence. Walk the battlefield itself, admire the Bruce statue and delve further into the history within the Bannockburn Heritage Centre. Step back into the sumptuous world of Stirling Castle’s Royal Court and James V’s Palace, refurbished to show how it may have looked in the mid 16th century.

kings, queens and nobles enjoyed huge banquets in the Great Hall.

It’s a treasure house of Stirling’s history, art and artefacts and includes the oldest football in the world. Just 15 miles from Stirling but dating back to around 142 AD uncover evidence of Roman occupation within Falkirk’s Callendar Park. The Antonine Wall and ditch was constructed as a barrier against the northern tribes and stretched for almost 37 miles but was abandoned when the army retreated to Hadrian’s Wall. Take a walk around the beautiful grounds to admire this ancient structure, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or visit the visible remains at Bo’ness, Bonnybridge and near The Falkirk Wheel. As you explore this region, absorb the history and heritage as it transports you into a world of patriotism, beautiful architecture and fierce conflict.

The City of Stirling, Strathallan & The Campsies The City of Stirling, Strathallan & The Campsies blends history with modernity – a place where bustling towns and quiet villages are embraced by the Campsie Fells. At the heart of the region you’ll find the lively city of Stirling perfectly positioned between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Though thoroughly modern, Stirling has played a historical role in Scotland’s story, once an ancient capital in the country due to its strategic position on top of a volcanic plug and serving as the junction to the Highland and Lowlands. A favoured home of the mighty Stuart kings, Stirling Castle is visible for miles around, etched into the skyline. Great Scottish heroes rallied their armies to fight for the independence of Scotland though the castle was besieged many times. Seven different battle sites can be seen from the castle, including the 1297 Battle of Stirling Bridge fought by William Wallace, and the Bannockburn battleground where Robert the Bruce achieved his historic victory.

Loch Lomond, Helensburgh & West Dunbartonshire Journey west to enter a peaceful setting defined by contrasts. Helensburgh & West Dunbartonshire hug the banks of the River Clyde, bordering Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and the region of Argyll. From fascinating shipping heritage to wildlife and a great selection of outdoor activities, this region never fails to entertain. An air of mystery and romance await on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Immortalised in song, a whole host of artists have captured the essence of the loch using both traditional and more contemporary music. In such an inspiring setting, you are sure to uncover your own creativity. The loch sits to the west of the National Park, an area conserved for all to explore and enjoy, and is ideal for walkers. The West Highland Way, Scotland’s first official long distance route, runs through the park, and has been challenging generations of visitors and locals alike. Beginning in Milngavie and ending in Fort William, the route follows the shores of the loch with incredible views across to Ben Lomond, and follows Lowland moors and dense forest into the Highlands taking advantage of drove and military roads and disused railway tracks. The full 95 miles is not for the faint hearted, particularly the Devil’s Staircase taking you to the head of Glencoe. However, the reward is in the sense of achievement and incomparable scenery. Those looking for a shorter stroll can try just one stretch.

Getting active in the great outdoors couldn’t be easier around Loch Lomond, from cycling and sailing to fishing and climbing. Boats are available for hire and a variety of fish can be caught in the waters with tuition on offer. 01

At the foot of Loch Lomond you’ll find Balloch, home to Loch Lomond Shores which boasts great shopping and eateries, and the National Park Gateway Centre where you’ll find captivating interactive displays detailing the evolution of the park. The water bus connects to several of the scenic villages which nestle on the banks of the loch, from the busy pier of Balmaha on the east bank across to the peaceful village of Luss on the west. Some 10 miles north, Tarbet is an ideal base for exploring by foot or bicycle while Inversnaid is a popular stay over for West Highland Way walkers. The Victorian seaside town of Helensburgh is renowned for beautiful architecture. Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Hill House is a fine example, built as a domestic home with original furniture, interior designs and attractive grounds. Considered the ‘Garden City of the Clyde’, the town is the perfect place to wile away an afternoon.

Located to the north of Scotland’s first National Park, The Trossachs & Breadalbane marks the meeting ground for the Highlands and Lowlands where tall peaks tower over flat plains and crystal-clear lochs glimmer through the landscape. Villages nestle amid a wilderness of beauty spots and Callander and Aberfoyle provide a hub for visitors all year round. The Trossachs & Breadalbane is perfect for walkers who will enjoy some of the Munros and higher peaks in the area. You wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Breadalbane means ‘high country of Scotland’ in Gaelic. The Crianlarich area is home to the park’s tallest peak, Ben More, at 3,842 ft. Crianlarich is a good base for walkers where you’ll be met with a small, friendly Highland community which is easy to access by both road or rail. For a less strenuous climb, Ben A’an is known as a mountain in miniature, characterised by a distinctive pointed peak, stunning views and rocky summit. Look out of the historic SS Sir Walter Scott steamship sailing down Loch Katrine. Crystal-clear waters are a real feature of this landscape and the lochs, that include both Achray and Venachar, offer an excellent opportunity for fishing enthusiasts. A network of paths and trails lead across the Menteith Hills towards the Lake of Menteith where you’ll find breathtaking picnic spots as wonderful light brings the scenery to life.. Sir Walter Scott was inspired to write his famed poem The Lady of the Lake after visiting Loch Katrine with his family. See the magic brought to life first-hand as told by Scott in his vivid descriptions. You’ll instantly recognise the beauty that captured the imagination of this great poet who left behind a cultural heritage for all to appreciate. Why not explore the Trossachs Art and Literary Trail?

Scotland’s Star Quality!

- A simple, impartial, consistent approach to quality

VisitScotland, under the Scottish Tourist Board brand, runs the star grading schemes which assess the quality standards of all types of accommodation and visitor attractions from castles and historic houses to garden centres and arts venues. We quality assure over 70 percent of the accommodation in Scotland and 90 percent of the visitor attractions – so wherever you want to stay or visit, we’ve got it covered. Each establishment is reviewed once a year. We do the hard work so you can relax and enjoy your holiday. How does the system work?

Graded visitor attractions

A consistent standard wherever you stay

Visitor attractions from tourist shops and museums to leisure centres and tours are graded with 1 - 5 stars depending on their level of customer care. The focus is on the standard of hospitality and service as well as presentation, quality of shop or cafĂŠ (if there is one) and toilet facilities.

The promise of the stars:

Â?

it is clean, tidy and an acceptable standard

Â?Â? Â?Â?Â?

it is a good, all round standard

Â?Â?Â?Â?

it is excellent – furnished using high quality materials, superb food where provided and friendly, professional service

it is a very good standard, with attention to detail in every area

Our advisors visit and assess establishments on up to 50 areas from quality, comfort and cleanliness to welcome, ambience and service. The same star scheme runs in England and Wales, so you can follow the stars wherever you go.

Â?Â?Â?Â?Â? an exceptional standard where

It should be noted that those establishments that fail to meet our minimum standards will not be awarded a star rating.

Establishments awarded gold stars have consistently achieved the highest levels of excellence within their star grading.

presentation, ambience, food where provided and service are hard to fault

We grade all types of accommodation from hostels, through to B&Bs and self catering properties to hotels grand and small. We even grade campus accommodation and parks offering holiday homes and camping. So whether you prefer to spend the night under canvas or the canopy of a four-poster bed, we’ll make sure you know the standard to expect.

Booking Accepting accommodation by telephone or in writing means you have entered into a legally binding contract with the proprietor of the establishment. If you cancel or fail to take up that accommodation, for whatever reason, the proprietor generally has the right to ask for compensation. You should always check the cancellation terms in advance and, if you must cancel a booking, advise the management immediately.

Smoking The majority of Scotland’s indoor public places, including pubs, restaurants and cafés are smokefree by law, creating a healthier and fresher environment for residents and visitors to our beautiful country.

The Hippodrome is 100 Scotland’s first purpose built cinema, a stunning pre-art deco picture palace dating back to 1912, restored and reopened, with the latest projection and sound equipment, a friendly welcome, and screening the best major releases, independent films and classics. Designed by local architect Matthew Steele (1878-1937) and opened on 11 March 1912, the Hippodrome was a close collaboration between Steele and owner/ manager Louis Dickson (1880-1960). Dickson was a showman and keen cameraman. Many of Dickson’s films still survive and are preserved in the Scottish Screen Archive. We are celebrating the Hippodrome’s 100th birthday in 2012, with a year-long programme of special screenings, workshops, events and community projects.
