WWI trenches found in Stirling park
Archaeologists have uncovered a World War I trench system in a Scottish city park.
The trenches, used to train recruits of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, were found in Stirling's Kings Park after a tip-off from a retired park keeper.
About 20m (66ft) of the zig-zag trench system was opened up over three days.
The trenches have now been back-filled but could be the subject of further research in the future.
Lorna Main, archaeology officer with Stirling Council, said there were not many training trench systems recorded
She added: "It was really quite unusual to get the opportunity to explore something from that period."
A similar set of trenches was discovered in Ross-shire in 2008.
