Smith Art Gallery and Museum was founded in 1874. Within the
Stirling Smith are many fine examples of Scottish painting,
including work by Alexander Naysmyth, Sir William Allan and
John Duncan. The picturesque beauty of Stirling's countryside
has, as the collection shows, always attracted artists.
Stirling Smith is the repository for archaeological finds in
Stirling district, and has a botanical, geological and natural
history collection of note.
Smith is a good base from which to explore Stirling. Park
free at the Smith, and take the Back Walk to Stirling
Castle and the Old Town Jail.
