Archaeology Notes

N79SE 24 79209 93848

The abbots and monks of Dunfermline were the directors of the Grammar School at Stirling in 1173, at which date the first mention of it is found. It has been carried on, apparently with considerable success, since that time. Since the opening of the High School in 1854 the building has been used as a store by the Stirlingshire Militia.
