Boathouse, Dean Crescent, Stirling, 1906

The Boathouse at Dean Crescent, Stirling, is a well-known local landmark. It was built in 1906 for the Stirling Amateur Boating and Swimming Club. The Architect was A.M. Lupton of 20 Murray Place, Stirling. The architect has shown a boating scene above the main door on the front elevation but the actual building has the initials of the Club above crossed blue flags with red circles at the centre. If you are passing the building, you will note that the date of construction is given in plaster on the finial above the crest, picked out in blue.

The Boathouse is still in use today by Stirling Rowing Club as their clubhouse. Stirling Rowing Club is one of the oldest in Scotland having been originally formed in 1853. Stirling University Boat Club and the Royal Navy also use the Boathouse as a base for training.
