Lonely Planet review

From the Lake of Menteith (called lake not loch due to a mistranslation from Gaelic), 3 miles east of Aberfoyle, a ferry takes visitors to these substantial ruins. Mary, Queen of Scots, was kept safe here as a child during Henry VIII’s ‘Rough Wooing’. Henry attacked Stirling trying to force Mary to marry his son in order to unite the kingdoms.
