Some time ago we were fortunate to receive a compilation of articles pertaining to Gargunnock,transcribed from sources such as The Stirling Observer, they give an insight into the village in days gone by. Click on the title to view the article.
Gargunnock Parish Magazines were published from the late 1880s. They contain primarily information relating to church matters but as such also contain information such as births, marriages and deaths. There is an index to the magazines on John McLaren’s village history site which will be a great aid to those looking for information regarding specific people who lived in the village. On this site we have a (growing) transcript of the magazines for more general information.
John McLaren, who was born in the village, has compiled a large amount of historical information much of which can be found on his website .
