BeschreibungStirling Castle is one of Scotland's most famous historical sites and one that featured prominently in Scottish history. Associated particularly with the Stewart kings, its chequered history is inter-woven with details on the architectural changes made to the buildings through time. The withdrawl of the army from the castle in 1964 paved the way for a major campaign of conservation and restoration which forms the focus of this publication. A series of experts involved in this campaign report on the work carried out and reveal hidden details on this important building. Richard Fawcett looks at the architecture overall, Michael Lynch at the Great Hall in the reigns of Mary and James VI, Doreen Grove studies the militarisation of the castle, Iain MacIvor the decision to restore the Hall, and Ingval Maxwell, Peter Buchanan, Gordon Ewart and Duncan Peet deal with the different stages and procedures involved in the restoration, surveying and recording of the castle buildings.
