Stirling's Military Heritage (Apr)

Stirling's Military Heritage


Stirling is associated with two of the most notable names and battles in Scottish history, William Wallace and the Battle of Stirling Bridge, and Robert the Bruce and the Battle of Bannockburn. Stirling s military history, however, stretches back to when the Romans invaded Scotland and formed a line of fortresses as their first boundary just north of Stirling and the Celtic fort defending the lowest crossing point on the River Forth was destroyed around this time. A Roman road cuts through the town, and it became a road used by every military force to invade Scotland. In the year 843, Kenneth MacAlpine is said to have led an army of Scots into battle against the Picts close to modern day Stirling, resulting in the creation of the Kingdom of Scotland.
