Rare medieval letters relating to William Wallace and Robert the Bruce are to be exhibited together for the first time.
The exhibition entitled ‘Wallace, Bruce and Scotland’s Contested Crown’ will open at Stirling Castle next month and brings together two unique manuscripts which provide a fascinating insight into the different paths taken by these two leaders in securing the Scottish crown.
Visitors to some of Scotland’s most famous historic sites will be able to channel their inner artist next month.
A number of Historic Scotland sites are taking part in ‘The Big Draw’, the world’s biggest drawing festival.

A month of events at Stirling Castle to mark the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden and the subsequent coronation of the infant King James V will culminate in a weekend of commemoration on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 September.
After Flodden – Commemoration and Coronation will transport visitors back to the sixteenth century, giving them a glimpse into royal life in the period, as costumed interpreters help to bring to life the events of 1513, its aftermath and its impact on castle life.
