Our Heritage Trails
Family Heritage Trail
We’ve worked with local artist David Galletly to create an illustrated family heritage trail for Stirling City Centre. Learn all about the history of the city and meet some interesting characters, including an unlucky child who has been locked up in the stocks and Scotland’s national animal! Answer some questions along the way so that you can complete a codebreaker word scramble.
You can pick-up the trail at The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum, Stirling Central Library, Stirling Old Town Jail and the Visit Scotland Stirling iCentre.
