We are delighted to once again open our Doors for Scottish Civics Trust's national Doors Open Day event.
Bannockburn House invites you to take a tour of this historic Category A-listed property, which has survived largely unchanged since the 17th century apart from a Victorian extension.
After over 50 years of dormancy, the house and surrounding gardens and grounds were bought by the local community in December 2017 - with help from public donations and grants from organisations including Stirling Council and the Scottish Land Fund. A dedicated group of volunteers is now breathing new life into the house and grounds with the aim of creating a community hub, providing a range of activities and resources to benefit future generations.
Come and discover the house's connections to centuries of history, the part it played in the life of Bonnie Prince Charlie, the Jacobite movement and the worldwide tartan trade.
This event will also feature the Mark Leslie fine art photography exhibition that has been running during the first 2 weeks of September. More information about that can be found in the exhibition information below.
