The Old Town Wall in stirling

Old Town

 

Passing the Old High School of Stirling you approach the wall of the old town down Academy Road. The wall was built in 1547 to defend the town from English invaders.

The building of Academy Road and the High School in 1854 made it necessary to break through the wall. You can see how the wall was built with the rock partly as a foundation and partly as a support. The High School appears to grow out of the old wall.
