Description

From the murder of James I and the brutal torture of his betrayers to the beheading of Radical Weavers Baird and Hardie, the history of crime and punishment in Stirling’s Royal Burgh has reflected the passions and prejudices of the Scottish nation. Here are shocking tales of the brutal and the bloody, the sad and the seditious, of the thieves, traitors, murderers and martyrs who shaped the destiny of those who dwell upon the Castle Rock.

Richly illustrated, and filled with victims and villains, nobles, executioners and torturers, this book explores Stirling’s criminal heritage and the many grim and ancient punishments exacted inside the region’s churches, workhouses and schools. It is a shocking survey of our nation’s penal history.
