Gene Maxwell, a retired Army Officer, was elected as a Councillor with Stirling Council in May 2022. He and his family have lived in the Trossachs for the last 30 years, Gene has been involved in a number of youth, charity and community organisations over that time. Since retirement Gene has developed his interest in archaeology and has taken part in a number of local 'digs', from Iron Age hill-forts to Medieval farmsteads.
Gene says "I am very interested in developing Stirling both as a tourist destination and as a great place for residents to live. This project will create an interesting centrepiece around which I'd hope to see riverside walks and activities developed, together with links to other historic sites as well as its role informing people about the Battle Of Stirling Bridge, De Moray & Wallace."
