There is evidence of a fortress at Stirling as far back as prehistoric times, guarding the passage between the lowlands and highlands.
Whoever controlled the fortress effectively controlled Scotland.
In March 2002 Stirling became Scotland's sixth city in celebration of the Queen's Golden Jubilee.
The City stands in a strategically important position, at the lowest ancient crossing point of the River Forth.
In my family, we have some very specific traditions that seem to happen every year so the adults decided to use these blank BINGO cards.Because of this, much of Scotland's history has been played out in or around Stirling.During the 1200s and 1300s control was wrested from the English, then lost: before being regained after the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314.We used the pre-made cards for inspiration and then added things like “The Cranberry Story” and “Nana says, ‘Finish that last bit.'” It was even more fun because there’s a little strategy involved with coming up with your own family traditions, plus it’s so much more personal!Everyone laughed a ton and got really excited when they got one!
