This is a picture of Stirling Castle
It is taken from a slightly unusual angle (i.e. the back) as the photograph of the castle was taken from the top of the Wallace Monument.

During a long and bloody history Stirling Castle has been attacked or besieged at least 16 times. Three battles have been fought in its immediate vicinity, two of which were turning points in Scottish history: and a fourth equally important battle took place just a few miles to the north. A number of Scottish Kings and Queens have been baptised, or crowned, or died within or near Stirling Castle. At least one King was murdered nearby: while another committed murder within its walls.

This photograph is from a collection which shows the variety of scottish castles and country houses or the national monuments and churches that help make the country of scotland. From pictures of scottish castles to images of industrial landscapes. Whatever you are looking for in terms of pictures images or photographs of scotland then hopefully you will find it here
