If you love history, you will revel in Stirling. Not only is there Stirling’s spectacular castle perched high above the city, the compact heritage mile that links Stirling’s Old Town with its busy city centre is resplendent in historic buildings. Beautifully preserved medieval and Renaissance churches and mansions cluster around the Old town, flanked by cobbled streets, period street furniture and Victorian styled ironwork.

For those who have got a serious amount of money to spend on a property, the stately stone villas and semis of King’s Park are beautiful.
