Overview

18 September 2021 (12pm-3pm) DigiResources Stirling 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. Booking is essential. Tickets are
free but must be booked in advance, book here Tours can be booked at 12:00 /
13:30 / 15:00. Parking available on driveway of house for booked visitors
only. Please car share where possible as there is limited parking space.
