I'm studying abroad from mid June to mid July in Stirling (I'm from the US) and I've heard it rains a lot in the UK, so I was wondering if it really would be worth investing in rain boots that are also comfortable walking boots for my trip? I'm just worried about packing them because they tend to be heavy and I'd have to buy a new good pair.
My husband and I (we're from U.S.) will be visiting Selkirk in the Borders in June 2014 for a few days. We want to go from Selkirk to Stirling on Sat, June 28. We need to be in Stirling by 10:00 a.m. for Bannockburn event. We hope to avoid renting a car. What are our options for transportation and about how long does it take to get to Stirling? We'll be in Stirling for a couple of days and then go on to Edinburgh.
I'm off to Stirling for a couple of days in December and I'll be checking out Stirling castle, the Wallace monument and going up to Callander.
What else should I not miss. I've looked at a lot of internet sites so don't need pointing in that direction.
I'd like someone from the region or who knows the region well to make some suggestions. There seems so much and I have so little time.

I am considering going from Edinburgh to Stirling in the first week of April and am getting a Rail fare of GBP6.50 and a Bus fare of GBP5.40
As the prices are almost the same, I was wondering which route would be more scenic. The time of travel would be early morning like 9am or so.
Can anyone suggest a good chinese takeaway please?
Hi, Planning a short break in Scotland. My plan so far is :
Monday: arrive Edinburgh 14:20, train to Stirling, spend night there
Tuesday: bus to Doune, back to Stirling for castle and bus tour, train back to Edinburgh in the evening.
Is it feasible to do Stirling and Doune in one day?
Will I be able to purchase rice milk in Stirling?
to get into the castle cafe does one have to pay for entry to the castle itself or is the cafe a place where i can simply go for lunch without the castle?
we will stay 4 days in stirling (and suburbs) in october and need an accomadation hotel/B&B in the city itself; indeed, we have a gig on the tolbooth the first night.
we need 1 double room and 2 singles.
somebody has an idea?
I have planned a holiday in Scotland [ next year ] and have chosen Stirling as a home base. I will be arranging my accomodation with a travel agency [b&b's] but would like some local knowledge on day tours. For example to the Highlands etc. Are there any day trips from Stirling and will it be possible to book when I get there or should I make the arrangements before I leave Australia. Also I saw on the net about a shop in a village somewhere outside Stirling where you could buy hand made woollen clothing. Does this place exist or was I just dreaming about it! I intend to buy some nice woollen garments in Scotland and was wondering about how much I'd pay for say a jumper or scarf etc. from a department store. Thanks in advance. Cheers....................Louise
I plan on touring Stirling Castle on my way to the Isle of Skye. Since I will be driving to Mallaig to catch the ferry the same day, I am wondering how much time I should reasonably allocate for touring Stirling Castle before continuing on my journey.
We'll be bringing our high school handbell choir - a group of 30 - to the Edinburgh area in 2004. Right now we're trying to plan a few days of touring. So far we have a half day in the borders (Jedburgh and Floors Castle), a day and a half in Edinburgh (Castle, Royal Mile, Princes Street, Holyrood), and a day in Stirling. We are wondering if there are any suggestions as to what is nice for a day of touring on a boat. How about it?!
