Fingal’s Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staff, one of the Inner Hebrides islands which skirt the western coast of Scotland. The immense arch-roofed cave creates a melodic, haunting echo of waves within its cathedral-like atmosphere; something so impressive Romantic Poets John Keats, William Wordsworth, and Alfred, Lord Tennyson all made journeys here; as well as Her Majestic Queen Victoria. The cave’s Gaelic name is Uamh-Binn, meaning “cave of melody.”
Stirling Castle is one of the largest and most important castles, both historically and architecturally, in Scotland. Several Scottish Kings and Queens have been crowned at Stirling Castle, including Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1543. There have been at least eight sieges of Stirling Castle, including several during the Wars of Scottish Independence, with the last being in 1746, when Bonnie Prince Charlie unsuccessfully tried to take the castle.
