With Thy Towers High


Our With Thy Towers High book publication brings together the evidence from the archaeological excavations, surveys, historical research and investigations which have taken place during the conservation of Stirling Castle.

Stirling Castle is an enduring symbol of an epic past and dominates the surrounding landscape from its volcanic outcrop. The castle’s history is inextricably bound with that of the Scottish nation. Touched by every drama and conflict, from the campaigns of the Wars of Independence, through the Jacobite threat, to conflicts of the twentieth century, when it served until the 1960s as home to the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.

Almost every Scottish monarch has also left a mark on the castle, which has over the centuries served as both castle and palace: a strategic stronghold and a secure residence for the Stewart monarchs and their children.
