Hence the massive effort by volunteers to leaflet/banner/ use photographic posters showing what we've already lost, etc.
And it was all worth such effort, for the turn-out - over 500 - was the largest yet. Led by the Bruce and his generals, a.k.a. our friends from Renton Artisans, in their 14th century costumes, and our four pipers led by Stewart Marshall, who gave their most inspirational performance yet, the March arrived at the Borestone to hear equally inspirational speeches from Bruce Crawford MSP, and our main speaker, Dr Elspeth King, of the Stirling Smith. Ann McGuire MP couldn't, unfortunately, make it.
News Update - The result of such public pressure came about four days later when a motion by Councillor Scott Farmer, seconded by Steven Paterson, urging Stirling Council to consider again how the Hill might be preserved, was unanimously accepted at a full meeting of Stirling Council. Thus, the shadow over the Hill these past few months may be just a little lightened.
