Cowane Awakes

The renewed Cowane’s Hospital, Stirling, will soon be open to the public and available for a wide variety of uses, after 12 years of funding challenges and 4 years of work.  Designed by John Mylne, the King’s Mastermason, and built for Scotland’s oldest charity to house 12 ‘decayed brethren’, the building is an immense source of pride for the Burgh and Britain’s oldest Guild (900 years).  This new aerial view by Colin McLean shows its wonderful setting in the Carse of the Forth with the Church of the Holy Rudethe Castle and the Trossachs in the distance.
