2020 is Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters, and with no river in Scotland having had as many names as the River Forth it is imperative to highlight the river’s role in our history. It has been a boundary, a frontier and route for millennia.

The National Wallace Monument, having been built on the Abbey Craig, provides a spectacular view of the River Forth where Scotland’s army once triumphed at the Battle of Stirling Bridge. This historic event, and many more, highlight how the river’s character and nature has helped to shape Stirling and in turn Scotland.

Join Dr Murray Cook on Wednesday 15th April, to discuss the river’s role in our history as we celebrate Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 2020.

Pre-booking is highly recommended as a limited number of tickets are available.

Bookings can be made by emailing info@nationalwallacemonument.com, calling (01786) 472140 - or by speaking to a member of staff.

The evening lecture will take place in Legends Coffee House at the Monument. Tea and coffee will be served on arrival. Formal event proceedings start 30 minutes after the stated arrival time and each lecture will last for approximately 60 minutes.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Evening Lecture - Murray Cook - CANCELLED are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
