You'll stumble on this ruins if you are heading to the Church of the holy rude. It's what's left of an old residential house of the Earl of Stirling. Only the facade is left and, on its back, a cemetery. Worth passing by.

Close to the entrance of Holy Rude Church in Stirling Old Town are the ruins of Mar’s Wark. The building was built between 1570 and 1572 by John Erskine, Regent of Scotland and Earl of Mar. The building was intended to be the residence of the Erskine family in Stirling. The Earl of Mar was the keeper of Stirling Castle during its construction. Only the frontage of the building remains but it is quite an impressive sight with the Old Town Cemetery as its backdrop.

This ruined building just in front of the Holy Rude Church is associated with Clan Erskine and the Scottish Kings of the middle ages. Part fortification, part Renaissance style house, most of what’s left is the front facade of the building facing the main street. The towers flanking the main entrance, inscriptions and heraldic relief sculptures are all that remains of what was once a grand residence. You can go to the first floor of the building by entering the Church of the Holy Rude where there’s an entrance to the Wark. It's worth going to the back because you get good views of the surrounding area and down the hill. A nice landmark of Stirling and worth a look if visiting the town.

Impressive ruins of old Renaissance townhouse of John Erskine, Earl of Mar sits right next to the Church of the Holy Rude. Of 16th century principal residence of the keeper of the Stirling Castle only facade left. Built in years 1570-1572 it still bears some of its beautiful carved heraldic panels. Main panel, just above the entrance gate presents two unicorns supporting coat of arms of England with their front legs. Additionally, each of the unicorns is holding banner, one with St. Andrew's Cross of Kingdom of Scotland, and another one with the Lion of Kingdom of England. Very characteristic of the building is central piece of facade that resemble gatehouse with two polygonal towers on top of which there are still two gargoyles left. During Jacobite Rising of 1715 house was used as a barracks. Later on, there were plans by Stirling Town Council of turning Mar's Lodging into a workhouse but during Forty-five Rebellion building was occupied by Jacobite troops leading to considerable damage. After fall of uprising Mar's Wark was left to decline into ruin. Town Council tried to demolish remains of the building but their plans were never enacted. You can't miss it on your way to or from Stirling Castle.

It was built as a magnificent Town House in the 16th Century and still retains a lot of the original features although it is now a ruin. Its easy to imagine what it must have been like in the day. There are also good views of the building from the cemetery behind.

From the street this looks to be derelict but if you enter the cemetery from the road downhill from it and walk around about 40-50 yards to your right along the cemetery path here is a small gate in the iron fence which gives you access. Great views from the (derelict) windows.

A lovely ruin, of what must have been a beautiful building in its day. But still worth looking at, if your in the area.

I did not notice it straight away when was passing by the road to the Stirling castle, but definitely worth to see and to take some medievalish photos.

We passed this on our way down from Stirling Castle. It's attractive, makes a few nice photos, but otherwise not remarkable. If you're walking you "can't miss it." Takes only a few minutes.
