Stirling Launch Night!
Researching your Family History can be fascinating. Following the initial work of tracking down ancestors, some of the real fun can be investigating the types of work they did or the community in which they lived. The increased interest in this type of research has resulted in huge amounts of information in print and online. Stirling Libraries can help support your research by giving you access to our collections and assistance where required. For the Burgh of Stirling. For each property, they record the name and designation of the proprietor, the tenant and the annual rateable value. A collection of maps fo the 19th and 20th centuries including large scale maps for the Stirlingshire area and geological maps.

The commissions and elements from the onsite exhibition are archived at WFMU. Fourth Wall , a new site specific wide screen movie, reflects upon the illusion of separateness. Through the viewing, cutting and editing of hundreds of pre-existing movies, Vicki searches for multiple and parallel narratives and collages these together to create a flowing stream of consciousness, attempting to breakdown this wall and reveal what she perceives as a greater reality and oneness beyond relativity.
The result is a chorus of people looking beyond themselves for their perfect mirror, calling from thousands of isolated portals, bonded by their almost identical searches, questions and intentions creating an aura of interconnectivity. The goal of the project is to support invited artists through professional stipends, materials and fabrication budgets, workspace, access to equipment and technical support, public presentations of their work in solo exhibitions, site-specific installations, screenings, and concerts, and interaction with local artists and communities through collaboration, lectures, master classes, workshops, and in-school residencies.

Through a friend of a friend we were asked by a journalist if we would like to be interviewed for a piece in our local paper — The Stirling Observer. It came as a surprise but of course, we jumped at the chance! It was a quick interview, a couple of drafts and within a couple of days there Harry was in the paper. Best time ever in your care!
Congratulations on the article and we wish you much success! This tour is sure to satisfy everyone — Gin, Whisky and Beer! On the tour we visit the McQueen Distillery , who are also no strangers to a feature in the Stirling Observer, Deanston Whisky Distillery and last but not least one of Scotlands smallest breweries The Allanwater Brewhouse. As part of a custom private tour of scotland we took a group round the Trossachs today.
It is probably the optimal time to take one of our tours of Scotland. The Angels Share, is not just brilliantly funny Ken Loach Film but a well known saying within the whisky industry. Discover that and more on our Whisky Tour. If you want to go on your very on Nessie expedition, have a look at our Monster Hunt Tour.

The market town , surrounded by rich farmland, grew up connecting the royal citadel , the medieval old town with its merchants and tradesmen,  the bridge and the port. Located on the River Forth , Stirling is the administrative centre for the Stirling council area , and is traditionally the county town of Stirlingshire. Proverbially it is the strategically important “Gateway to the Highlands”. It has been said that “Stirling, like a huge brooch clasps Highlands and Lowlands together”.

The Observer has spoken to a pair of retailers about their Covid experiences and their plans to restart after First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed Scotland was moving into phase two today. As Covid heads into retreat, the focus is increasingly turning to getting life and the economy back on track after months of lockdown. The second phase will allow relaxations including being able to see members of another household indoors for the first time, the return of professional sport and even the restarting of weddings.
The move will allow local shops and retailers across Stirling to once again welcome customers after weeks of hibernation. Owner Lisa Davidson has been running the Tinkerbells Emporium gift shop for almost four years and is planning to welcome customers back through the doors as soon as possible. Just one shop down from Tinkerbells on Friar Street is kilt hire firm House of Henderson, who have been operating in the city for 97 years.
Director Jordan Henderson has been at the helm for nearly seven years and admits Covid has been one of the biggest challenges the company has faced.
Last month we had the second talk of winter series Ecclesiastic architecture by Simon Green , which was well attended and very interesting. Sadly, a well respected committee member tendered resignation because of a move of house to another area away from Stirling. Last month we made contact with the deputy headteacher for Stirling High School regarding the Sculpture Adoption Scheme and also the possibility of trying to establish a small civic project for a group of students to identify, and implement an achievable project that would enhance the urban or rural environment.
We are now waiting for a response.

He said he tendered his resignation some time ago, but added: “The Holy Father has now decided that my resignation will take effect today. For any failures, I apologise to all whom I have offended. The date was brought forward with immediate effect one day after allegations emerged in The Observer newspaper from three priests and a former priest. They complained to the Vatican about behaviour towards them going back about 30 years, according to the report.
Cardinal O’Brien said: “I thank Pope Benedict XVI for his kindness and courtesy to me and, on my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Scotland, I wish him a long and happy retirement. I also ask God’s blessing on my brother Cardinals who will soon gather in Rome to elect his successor. May God who has blessed me so often in my ministry continue to bless and help me in the years which remain for me on Earth and may he shower his blessings on all the peoples of Scotland, especially those I was privileged to serve in a special way in the Archdiocese of Saint Andrews and Edinburgh.
