Stirling Castle, dating from early 12th century, is one of the largest and most important castles
in Scotland.It is surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs, giving it a strong defensive position.
Its strategic location, guarding what was until the 1890s the farthest downstream crossing of the
River Forth, has made it an important fortification from the earliest times. Several Scottish Kings
and Queens have been crowned at Stirling Castle, including Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1542

Cambuskenneth Abbey, founded byKing David I around the year of 1140, is a ruined Augustinian
monastery located on the River Forth near Stirling. Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, it was initially known
as the Abbey of St Mary of Stirling, or simply Stirling Abbey. The road between Stirling Castle and
the abbey is St. Mary's Wynd

The reel case stands approximately 2¼" (58 mm) high and measures 3⅜" (85 mm) diameter

The box, complete with tightly fitting lid, is in good condition commensurate with age, save for
some marks on, and around, Cambuckenneth Abbey as can be seen from the photos below

It would make a fine addition to any Mauchline Ware or sewing collection
