Launch of the SURSA oral history project
Stirling has a precious opportunity denied to most other universities: a chance to create an oral history of the University right from its foundation.
Wednesday 25 April - 10:30am
A pleasant and relatively easy 5 mile circular walk initially along the Fife Coastal Trail and affording great views over the Tay estuary. It will take approximately 2.5 to 3 hours. At Balmerino we have the opportunity of exploring the ruined abbey built by a Cistercian monastic community founded in 1227 to 1229. It is also a pleasant place to sit and enjoy refreshments we have brought with us. Depending on the weather, our return route will be via a higher path passing through recently planted woodland and affording good views across the estuary.
Friday 27 April - 7:30pm
A performace at the Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh.
Wednesday 2 May - 10:30am

Alison's description of Culbuie is as follows "a woodland garden with many azaleas, rhododendrons, bluebells and wet-loving plants". She describes her own garden as being "similar but smaller and wilder featuring bluebells, a bog garden and a glass house with a vine, peaches, fig etc".
