Things to do near Cumbernauld
Perched on a granite outcrop five miles north of our Stirling Hotel, the impregnable fortress of Stirling Castle is an impressive destination. Even more impressive fact: Historians think it was the home of the legendary King Arthur. Or if you want more hills (and more Arthurian legend), visit Arthur's Seat, the famous peak in Edinburgh.
