Artist's impression of the battle of Stirling Brig




Present day bridge at Stirling

This bridge is near the place where the old wooden 'brig' used to be in Wallace's time. The Battle of Stirling, as depicted in Braveheart, was known historically speaking as the Battle of Stirling Bridge, because so much of the outcome depended on the Scots defending it. Although not the original one, it is still very old and worth a visit.

The Scotsman newspaper reported on 7 April 1997, that divers from Stirling University had found the remains of the ancient bridge under the river. This indicates that the ancient brig of Wallace's battle crossed the river diagonally.
