Five great things about the City of Stirling

Compact
with a big city feel

Stirling is one of Scotland’s newest cities, having been awarded city status in 2002. While easily navigated by foot—and with the likelihood of bumping into people you know—it also has all the amenities you would find in a bigger city, from a shopping centre to concert hall.

Sporting city

The University of Stirling is Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence, with fantastic facilities like the National Swimming Academy and Scottish Tennis Centre located within the University campus. The surrounding hills provide an excellent escape for walkers, runners and cyclists.

Historic hub

Once the capital of Scotland, the City of Stirling is an historic hub. Its castle is the second most visited attraction in Scotland, and with many other historic sites, including the Wallace Monument, there is a lot to learn and discover about Scotland’s history.

Great location and breathtaking scenery

Stirling is perfectly situated in the Central Belt, with excellent rail and bus links, and within an hour of two international airports, Scotland's capital Edinburgh and largest city Glasgow. Stirling is also affectionately named the ‘gateway to the Highlands’.

Entertainment aplenty

Stirling and its surrounds, including neighbouring Bridge of Allan, offer a wide range of pubs and venues serving up lively atmospheres and music performances. Stirling also hosts many festivals, from Bloody Scotland - Scotland's International Crime Writing Festival - to its very own arts and cultural Stirling Fringe Festival.
