Additional Social Events

Some interesting events are taking place in and around the campus during your stay at the RWL8 Conference.

Whisky Tasting taking place on Wednesday 19th June at 5.30pm – 6.30pm, Stirling Management Centre:

The whisky tasting will be a tasting of six single malts showcasing the regional variations of Scottish whisky. We will be tasting a whisky from each of the recognised production areas to see how and why they differ. The whiskies will be from some of the most highly regarded distilleries and in some cases will be unique single cask bottling’s that will never be repeated. This is a great opportunity for complete beginners to gain an understanding of Scottish single malts and enjoy some unique flavours; and for whisky connoisseurs to taste some utterly unique single cask whiskies.

Art Collection Tour taking place on Thursday 20th June at 4.10pm – 5.10pm, Pathfoot Building, University of Stirling:

The first Principal, Tom Cottrell was a scientist who championed the establishment of an art collection as he believed that art should be "part of the everyday experience at the University".  Thanks to Tom Cottrell’s stewardship, the University of Stirling is privileged to be custodians of a unique art collection that includes fourteen works by J D Fergusson, gifted to us by his widow Margaret Morris.  Over 40 years later, the Art Collection now includes art works covering the spectrum of modern Scottish painting and sculpture, including works by John Bellany, Elizabeth Blackadder, Alan Davie, Joan Eardley, Eduardo Paolozzi and Anne Redpath.  

New Lanark Visitor Centre taking place on Saturday 22nd June 10.00am – 4.00pm, New Lanark, South Lanarkshire:

The New Lanark Visitor Centre is a beautifully restored 18th century cotton mill village in Southern Scotland, close to the Falls of Clyde.  Founded by David Dale in 1785, the village became famous as a model industrial community under the enlightened management of Dale’s son-in-law, Robert Owen, from 1800-1825.  It offers an exciting range of exhibitions and visitor facilities. A full guided visit will take place, which includes a guided tour of the village, the Annie McLeod Experience, working textile machinery, the Roof Garden and the Millworkers’ visit.  The visit will last at least two hours. There are also beautiful walks to be enjoyed in the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve, for which sensible shoes are recommended.
