GUARDIANS OF SCOTLAND TRUST
10th March 2023
The Guardians of Scotland Trust are delighted to confirm that the new floodlighting of Stirling Bridge was officially switched on by actor James Cosmo during a ceremony on the north bank of the River Forth at Bridgehaugh on Friday 10th March at 6.45pm. The ceremony took place on the north bank of the river and also marked the launch of a public appeal to fund the proposed statue "Brothers in Arms". A reception and Fund Raising Concert was held in Stirling Rugby Club Main Hall, featuring well known Scottish musicians.
Until now the site of one of Scotland's most important battles has been largely overlooked. The Trust believes it is time to put that right and also to tell the true story of the battle and give Andrew de Moray recognition alongside William Wallace as being co-commander of the Scottish army.
We are delighted to have had the generous support of FES who are supplying and installing the lighting free of charge. This alone, will be of huge benefit both to the town as a tourist attraction and to increasing interest in the site itself. The main aim of the trust is to make the site a fitting memorial to all those who fell and to tell the story as accurately as we can.
