Laurencecroft Road, Stirling, FK8 1AQ, Scotland



The present Stirling Old Bridge was built in the 1400s or 1500s, replacing a succession of timber bridges. Undoubtedly the best-known of these was one that stood nearby in the 1290s, when Sir William Wallace and Sir Andrew Moray defeated Edward Is forces at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. The bridge also played a part in the Jacobite Rising of 1745, when an arch was removed to forestall Bonnie Prince Charlies forces as they marched south. The bridge today remains one of the best medieval masonry arch bridges in Scotland.
