A Brief Introduction

A mighty stone castle precariously perched atop a volcanic crag, Stirling Castle was the favored residence of many Scottish monarchs for centuries, including the King James V of the Stuart lineage, father of Mary, Queen of Scots.

In 2009, Historic Scotland and the Digital Design Studio at The Glasgow School of Art scanned the entire castle to digitally document the important monument and to provide accurate survey information to inform conservation works. CyArk's web portal will make this information accessible to a wider audience.
