Stirling's World Heritage hope

A SCOTTISH city has revealed plans to be a World Heritage site.

Councillors in Stirling have put forward proposals to seek Unesco World Heritage status for the historic core of the city.

The status would register the city as a place of special culture or physical significance at an international level, with other heritage sites ranging from the Acropolis in Athens to New Lanark.

Councillor Neil Benny said: "Stirling has the historical significance to be recognised internationally.

"Places like Canterbury, Bath, Durham and Edinburgh all make the list and we need to aspire to that."
