3 Seasons in the Park - with visitors!
NEW Interactive Heritage Trail
Trail with Interactive Signs Installed in the Park
Thanks to a grant funding from Heritage Lottery and a huge amount of effort from our Park volunteers and with information from local residents, a new heritage trail has been installed in the Park. Now as you walk around the Park you can find out some details about the history and wildlife of the area from these distinctive interactive semaphore signs.
Lift the sign to read about the history of the location and to find out what wildlife can be seen in the vicinity.
As an added bonus each post has a QR code on the side - see on left. Scan these with your phone and listen to a recorded audio tour of the Park.
Listen to Stirling Council Ranger Jennifer Davidson tell you about the ecology, Friends of Plean Country Park Chair Fran Barr talking on the history and community, and Council archaeologist Murray Cook explaining some of the past history of the Park.
Additionally there are reminiscences from two sisters Mary Taylor and Charlotte Clark who lived on the estate in the 1940s and James Aikman, Stirling Council Land Services and retained firefighter.
You can listen to all the audio from the trail by going to Audio Link
Storm Hector in the Park
Storm Hector has made its presence felt in the Park.
Besides the widespread foliage and branches littering the park after the storm a number of paths were affected by fallen trees.
The paths from the North drive to the car park were blocked by fallen branches. A large section of an oak tree blocked the horse trail by the burn, and a giant beech fell across the path from the Meadow to the South Drive.
Land Services have reacted quickly and have removed most of the hazards, but the big beech is proving more of a challenge. The trunk has been cut from the root which has fallen almost exactly back into place.
Meantime this path has been taped off for safety, so you need to find an alternative route.
