Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (216 pages)
Author: A. M'Michael
This history begins with Stirlingshire, first providing a history of the town and castle of Stirling and stressing the important location of that county and the attraction which it held for foreign armies seeking to penetrate into the interior of Scotland. It includes an account of the battle of Stirling, but then turns to the important towns of the county, including Bridge of Allan and Logie, among others. Each parish is then surveyed and described in turn, providing information on the location of the parish, its population, major sites, and other distinctive characteristics.
The author then turns to Dumbarton and Linlithgowshires and proceeds through those counties parish by parish, accumulating a substantial amount of information on the activities, characteristics, towns, castles, and other distinctive features of many parishes in these counties.
