Edward had him barbarously hung, drawn and quartered as a ‘traitor’ which ensured he has been a national hero ever since. This central corridor of the country was much fought over, for Stirling was the lowest bridging point on the Forth and so forced communications in that direction, for good or ill. We seldom remember how greatly history is affected by geography, both in the big events and battles and in everyday social activity and trade. Falkirk as the ‘epicentre of Scotland’ could hardly escape. Now it is a town of 40,000 inhabitants and a busy place despite the decline of older industries.
