2021 Programme:

Bannockburn House
18 September 2021
The Category A Listed Bannockburn House dates from around 1675 and has many historic connections with well-known characters from the past. Much of the interior décor from as early as the late 1600s is still intact. The house is part of a small country estate. The local community recently raised the cash and bought the house and have lots of exciting plans for its ongoing future use.

Cambusbarron Community Development Trust
Polmaise Castle was built by the Architect William Burn in 1863 and demolished 14th July 1966. Although not a designated historic garden and designed landscape, the castle’s gardens were laid out and retain any remnants of it’s past. In 2019 Cambusbarron Community Development Trust purchased 64 hectares of Polmaise Wood, on the north-east side of Gillies Hill. This will allow the community to have an active role in protecting, managing, and developing the Hill.

Codebase
18-19 September 2021
Codebase Stirling is the heart of the city’s growing technology ecosystem. Our hub gathers and supports the tech community by clustering startups and bringing together industry, investors, and academia. We provide scaleup education, hotdesking and flexible work space, mentoring and excellent events.
For Doors Open Days 2021 we are inviting you to take a peek inside the Category B Listed Old Municipal Buildings.

Holy Trinity Scottish Episcopal Church
Holy Trinity, Stirling, dating from the late 1878 is a stunning Category A Listed church.Converted by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson in 1921 to commemorate the fallen of World War 1, the building and it's interior are in near original condition. There are many original fittings and it is noted particularly for the high-quality stained glass windows and range of military memorials, including the carved war memorial in the Memorial Chapel. This Category A Listed church was consecrated on 12 September 1878 and has many special interior features, including fine stained glass windows, one of which was transferred from the church’s previous building in Barnton Street.
