Format: Paperback
For someone really wanting to know about Stirling Castle you will love this. It's a thin book, so on first inspection you might deep it a little pricey for a book with so few pages. Remember this is not a volume sales book, but a collectors style edition and they didn't spare cost in producing it. Dozens of pictures, high quality colour, from every view of the castle, ramparts and the grounds, it gives you a guided tour starting with the Outer Defences and works inward, moving through the Outer Close, Inner Close to the Great Hall, kitchens and then the palace proper.
You are treated to the nether Bailey, Magazines, the royal parks and gardens. This the book moves to Stirling's role in history, from it's beginnings through the War of Independence with Edward Longshanks to it being the palace of James IV, V and VI. You will continue to it's role during the Jacobite Rebellion and finally with the castle in more modern times.
It's really worth it. A great resource for writers as well as for someone planning a jaunt to this side of the Pond.
