Snowdon Cemetery, Stirling :: Shared Description

The Snowdon Cemetery was created in 1924. Centred on NS79059391, it is just to the northwest of the Valley Cemetery, but is distinct from it, having its own enclosing wall. Before the Snowdon Cemetery was created, a building called Snowdon House stood there, at about NS79039390; it was at one time the residence of Dr Patrick Doig (d.1833).

Just south of the cemetery, at NS79069386, is a small eminence that early OS maps (c.18581898) label "Brandy Hill", but which the 1913 map revision calls "Crandy Knowe"; the latter seems the more historically authentic name: Robert Chambers, in "A Picture of Stirling" (1830), calls it "the Crandy Hill".

See Link for the adjacent Old Town Cemetery (comprising the Valley Cemetery, the Kirkyard, Mar's Wark Cemetery, the Star Pyramid and Drummond Pleasure Ground, and Ladies' Rock), and for references to more information about this area.
