New Anthology Marks Local Places, People and History

Alyn Smith MP has welcomed the launch of a brand-new book showcasing Stirling’s history. At an event organised by Stirling District Tourism, ‘Stirling Legends’ was described as an anthology documenting just some of the tales of the incredible people and places that make our historic city so unique.

Taking place in Stirling Castle’s Chapel Royal, SDT worked closely with local publisher Extremis Publishing to bring together this collection of Stirling stories. Coinciding with VisitScotland’s Year of Scotland’s stories and the Scottish International Storytelling Festival, the book will only serve to enhance Stirling’s growing reputation as an arts and cultural powerhouse.

Stirling Legends is available for purchase online.

Local MP Alyn Smith said:

‘This is a brilliant contribution to Stirling’s cultural scene, pulling together fantastic local writers and experts to showcase the very best of our heritage. I thank Stirling District Tourism and Extremis Publishing for putting together an engaging event, helping shed fresh light on the rich local stories from Stirling’s shared history. I urge everyone to pick up a copy if they can.’
