Bannockburn House, Stirling

A 17th century manor house with Victorian additions. Prince Charles Edward called here briefly in September 1745. The Prince returned in January 1746 and used the house as his HQ during the siege of Stirling and its castle. His army set off from here to defeat the Government force at the battle of Falkirk. The Prince met Clementina Walkinshaw at Bannockburn House when she nursed him during a period of illness. She would later become his mistress and mother to his daughter.


After a community buyout in 2017 both house and grounds are undergoing development. Access is currently only for events or by special arrangement. Details of access should be checked via the house website.
