Product description

Written by well-known writer, broadcaster and genealogist Bruce Durie, this book tells the amazing story of Stirling's history from earliest times to the modern day. Some of the most pivotal moments in Scottish history occurred in the city's surroundings, including the Battle of Bannockburn - the greatest military victory in Scottish memory. But there is more to central Scotland's premier city than a battle, Robert Bruce and William Wallace. Illustrated with over 120 pictures - including 16 colour plates - and filled with curious, interesting and quirky facts throughout, The Story of Stirling will interest anyone who knows and loves this part of Scotland.
