The paper outlines the history of the walk but also comments on its modern state.
Locals were rightly proud of this innovative Prospect Walk in the eighteenth century and visitors praised it in the nineteenth. It remains a vital asset but it is now under-appreciated and neglected - whilst the views, once a key attraction, are being obscured by overgrown trees or blotted by modern developments.
I will place a copy of the paper in Stirling Central Library for ease of access or you can get your own or find more about The Pleasaunce at www.sglh.org
