The Scots have a tradition of recycling and reusing structures. This hotel had been a 19th c. primary school with a center courtyard and a planetarium. Today it has a modern pool and spa and dining rooms. The hotel rooms are rather large for European accommodations as are the bathrooms...ample shelf space for your stuff as well as heated towel racks. Breakfast includes haggis, fresh eggs, mild sausage, porridge etc as well as seasonal fruits and honey and marmelades said to have originated with Mary Queen of Scots who grew up in Stirling Castle. You can walk the steep incline to the Castle and Cathedral or descend to the town to shop and eat easily. We had a gala there to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our sister city relationship...well done by staff. Oh the manger came into our bus to bid farewell.
