Stirling Castle, located in Stirling, is one of the largest and most important castles in Scotland, both historically and architecturally.The castle sits atop Castle Hill, an intrusive crag, which forms part of the Stirling Sill geological formation.Before the union with England, Stirling Castle was also one of the most used of the many Scottish royal residences, very much a palace as well as a fortress.
However, there is no archaeological evidence for occupation of Castle Hill before the late medieval period.
Castle Hill, on which Stirling Castle is built, forms part of the Stirling Sill, a formation of quartz-dolerite around 350 million years old, which was subsequently modified by glaciation to form a "crag and tail".
It may later have been a stronghold of the Manaw Gododdin, and has also been identified with a settlement recorded in the 7th and 8th centuries as Iudeu, where King Penda of Mercia besieged King Oswy of Bernicia in 655.
Next summer, the castle changed hands again, being abandoned by the Scots after the English victory at Falkirk.
Edward strengthened the castle, but it was besieged in 1299 by forces including Robert Bruce.
