Stirling

The Category A Listed Church of the Holy Rude is the second oldest

building in Stirling (after the castle) and has been a place of worship

for over 600 years. King James VI was crowned within the church and it

houses the largest romantic organ in Scotland. It is surrounded by the

Top of the Town graveyards, from where musket shot-holes from 1651

are visible in the tower wall from when Stirling Castle was under siege.

The singing group, The Gargoyles

of Gargunnock, will provide

at various times a selection

of medieval and renaissance

songs in the style of wandering

minstrels.

There will be displays from

Stirling Council Archives

and Stirling Civic Trust with

representatives from both of

these organisations on hand

for most of the weekend to

answer your questions. Cowane’s

Hospital will also have a display

explaining about the ongoing

refurbishment works there.
