Gleneagles, a Scottish resort, is celebrating the upcoming release of the “Mary Queen of Scots” film by inviting guests to tour Stirling Castle and Linlithgow Palace where Mary Queen of Scots had lived in the 16th century. The three-day excursion explores the home of a woman who was a mother, wife, widow, rival, prisoner, victim and “star-crossed Queen.”

On their way to the queen’s home, resort-goers will pass key locations, including Sheriffmuir, a site of one of the Jacobite Rebellions; another is the Church of the Holy Rude, where Queen Mary’s son King James VI of Scotland and England was crowned. Once the tour is completed, travelers go back to the hotel where they could enjoy Scottish hospitality, food and country pursuits and end the day with a “Mary Queen of Scots” cocktail in The Century Bar.

Other sites of historical significance are subject to availability; these include Drummond Castle, where Queen Mary spent part of her Honeymoon, Loch Leven Castle and The Palace of Holyroodhouse. The package includes three nights in the Gleneagles Estate Room, an evening dinner, the guided tours and a hand-selected book on Mary Queen of Scots.
