St. Ninians, Stirling
St. Ninians, Stirling
This has been an ecclesiastical site since at least the 12th century. The last church on this site was used as a gunpowder store during the final Jacobite Uprising in 1745-46 when the army of Charles Edward Stuart was besieging Stirling Castle. Either accidentally or deliberately, the gunpowder was set alight, and St Ninians Parish Kirk was completely obliterated.
