Description:

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.
