Stirling in 50 Buildings

Stirling in 50 Buildings

Jack Gillon  (Autor)
Having been granted city status during the Golden Jubilee celebrations in 2002, Stirling is Scotland's smallest city with an enthralling wealth of architectural heritage and history which would be the envy of much larger places in the country. Stirling's heritage dates from the 13th century, when it was granted a Royal Charter and became a significant medieval settlement. Its strategic importance as the `Gateway to the Highlands' also made it the much fought over `Cockpit of Scotland' and it has been witness to many of the most significant battles in Scottish history.

In this book, author Jack Gillon takes the reader on a tour of 50 of the city's finest buildings and structures, celebrating its immense architectural heritage and ancient character.

Stirling's military prominence is reflected by its imposing castle, which has served as both a fortress and royal residence over the centuries. Mary, Queen of Scots was crowned there in 1543. The author also highlights the city's places of worship including the Church of the Holy Rude and the ruined twelfth-century Cambuskenneth Abbey. Other treasures include The Athenaeum, dating from the early nineteenth century; the Stirling Smith Art Gallery and the city's many historic houses, while past and present combine at the Battle of Bannockburn Centre. As the lowest bridging point on the River Forth, Stirling has its old and new bridges. Also featured are the memorials and monuments to notable figures such as Robert the Bruce and Sir William Wallace.

"Stirling in 50 Buildings" provides a fascinating and engaging exploration of this charming historic city that will appeal to residents and visitors alike.
