Stirling Castle Road Show heads to Glasgow’s George Square this Saturday.

Anyone in Glasgow this Saturday, 17th March, should get along to George Square where Stirling Castle’s Road Show, complete with the castle’s own customised truck with its own unicorn emblem will offer city centre shoppers the chance to find out about the exciting events at Stirling Castle.

There will be costumed performers and what’s more, children can have the opportunity to try on clothes from the renaissance period.

Come along and find out what makes Stirling Castle the perfect location for a family day out and enter our prize draw to win a trip to the castle and an overnight stay in Stirling.

The truck will be in George Square from 11:00 – 3:00pm.
