  For International Book Lovers Day, we caught up with Alasdair Burns from the publishing team at Historic Environment Scotland who highlighted his favourite books featuring stories about Stirling Castle.. From the journey of the Crown Jewels to Sara Sheridan’s guide to an imagined Scotland through a female lens, Stirling Castle features in a variety of our books. Stirling Castle is known to many around the world as that place Mel Gibson fought for in Braveheart. While most Scots will cringe away from the horrific historical inaccuracies portrayed in those.

Growing up in Stirling I used to visit the castle regularly, but to my shame I hadn't been back since the renovation of the Royal Chambers. Finally got there, and they look amazing. Its a great place to go exploring for a few hours, or on a warm sunny day, bring a book and sit under a tree, and let the history of the place sink in.
