I have been very conscious, for some time, that there has been a good deal of work done on royal landscapes since I first posted my paper and this is now noted along with some other amendments and updates.
John Gilbert has published important work on Falkland; in part he agrees with what I said (which is gratifying) and elsewhere he shows that I was wrong - which is how research proceeds and progress is made.
And Marilyn Brown has published her major work on Scottish gardens - I had had the benefit of discussions with her before the last version of the paper but it is a pleasure to acknowledge her work here.
Less positively, Stirling Council have taken over ownership of much of the Stirling Park - and have got their bulldozers to work on short order. In so far as my work helped with the argument that the landscapes should be taken from Crown control, I am beginning to regret it. Neglect was, surely, preferable to officially-endorsed vandalism?
