JUNE 2018

The National Wallace Monument | Events
Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled,
Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,
Welcome to your gory bed,
Or to victorie!
- Scots Wha Hae, Robert Burns

This Sunday, 24th June, marks the 704th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, when King Robert the Bruce defeated the army of King Edward II. That same day, 547 years later, on the 24th June in 1861, work began on The National Wallace Monument to atone for years of neglect of a fitting memorial to honour the patriot and martyr William Wallace.

In this month’s newsletter we talk about that pivotal day when work first began on the famous landmark built to honour the great Scottish hero.

Thanks to the power of 21st-century technology, it has never been easier to learn all about Stirling’s rich history, read on to find out about Stirling’s newly launched app which helps you uncover the city’s secrets whilst you are out and about!
THE LAYING OF THE FOUNDATION STONE

Monday 24th June 1861
- A Celebration in Stirling

“…no such gathering of Scotsmen has ever taken place within the memory of living men, and Stirling presented one of the liveliest and most incongruous of spectacles it has ever been our lot to witness." (The Stirling Observer)

In 1861 at the Laying of the Foundation Stone, Scotland’s ancient capital swelled in size as an estimated 100,000 people gathered in Stirling to participate in the celebrations. A two-mile procession took crowds from King’s Park to the Abbey Craig to bear witness to the ceremony.
