Come and take a tour of our historic Category A Listed Bannockburn House which, apart from a Victorian extension, has survived largely unchanged since the 17th century. After over 50 years of dormancy this beautiful house and grounds were bought by the local community in December 2017 – with help from public donations and grants from organisations including Stirling Council and the Scottish Land Fund.

A dedicated group of our wonderful volunteers are now breathing new life into the house and grounds with the aim of creating a community hub providing a range of activities and resources to benefit future generations. Come and discover all about the house’s long history, its connection to Bonnie Prince Charlie, the Jacobite movement and the worldwide tartan trade.

There will be teas and coffees available plus some stalls with information about projects going on at Bannockburn House. There is even a little shop selling keepsakes for you to remember your visit. The Sculpture Placement Group also has two sculptures located in Bannockburn House for the Doors Open Days weekend for visitors to enjoy.

Tours will run at 10, 12 & 2pm on both the Saturday and Sunday.
