At the entrance to the concourse -
The railway came to Stirling in 1848. By 1900 thousands of commuters, tourists and soldiers walked along the shaky wooden footbridge, erected in 1872 after complaints about having to cross the tracks to reach the far platform. Started in 1913, the present building designed by James Miller is one of Scotland's most elegant stations. Its battlements and crow-stepped gables were designed to be in keeping with the historic city.
