About the event
HISTORY OF BANNOCKBURN HOUSE
Bannockburn House is a rather special and historic place. It was built in the late 17th Century, with alterations made in the 19th Century. The original part of the house was completed around 1675 by Sir Hugh Paterson, although it’s thought to be built on an earlier building called Drummonds’ Hall. Sir John Drummond was granted the Barony of Bannockburn in 1567 by Mary Queen of Scots and his grandson built Drummonds’ Hall. Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed at Bannockburn House for three weeks in January of 1746. Hugh Paterson 2nd Baronet entertained Charles Edward Stuart here, where he met the Baronet’s niece, Clementina Walkinshaw, who would later become his lover and mother of his child. The Prince recuperated from illness at Bannockburn House during this time and Clementina tended to him. A painting of her hangs in Bannockburn House beneath the main ornate ceiling. The Key of Stirling was surrendered to the Prince when his Highland army entered Stirling at 2pm on Monday 6 January 1746. The key was lost for many years and was then found at Bannockburn House in 1902. The Battle of Falkirk Muir took place on 17 January 1746, which was the last Battle that the Jacobites won prior to Culloden. There have been many very interesting residents at Bannockburn House through the centuries.
