A LIVELY procession celebrating Stirling’s cultural heritage is set to take place in the town this weekend.

The Walking the Marches, which dates back to at leas 1611, is taking place on Saturday, September 15, starting at the Rotunda in the town centre at 11am.

It will be followed by a re-enactment display by Historia Normannis at the Smith Art Gallery and Museum and live music from Rogue Feather at Cowane’s Hospital.

The tradition originates from medieval boundary checks, in this case that of the Royal Burgh of Stirling.

Lucette Watret, convener of Walking the Marches, said: “Walking the Marches is a great way to get involved in the history of Stirling; whether it is walking in the footsteps of your ancestors, understanding a bit more about the history of Stirling, or simply getting to see all the different communities that get involved.”
