ABSTRACT
The article examines why James V selected Stirling, Scotland as the site for a royal place and how the resulting space was used by the royal court to make himself and the Queen of Scotland visible to their subjects. Topics covered include how sports, jousting, tournaments and hunting were integral to royal festivals and Stirling being the venue for most of the major royal festivals between the early 1540s and 1603.
