Stirling’s Archived Ecclesiastical Heritage Projects

Stirling colleagues have undertaken numerous projects involving Scottish ecclesiastical heritage. This research has often contributed directly to ‘Statements of Significance’ and heritage presentation materials for Properties-in-care by Historic Environment Scotland, as well as the National Trust for Scotland and local custodial bodies. This expertise also contributed to the Historic Environment Advisory Council for Scotland’s Report with recommendations on the long-term conservation of the ecclesiastical heritage in a time of demographic change (2009), presented to the Scottish Executive.

Our ecclesiastical project work includes:
