Pond and trees in garden

Garden of Time

As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations in 2017, we began redevelopment of a garden to the east of the University campus. The Garden of Time will be a place where nature meets art, and where students, alumni, staff and friends can celebrate a special memory, anniversary or achievement, or remember a loved one.

We know how significant the University grounds are to not only Stirling students, but also to members of the local community and visitors from around the world. Our beautiful campus environment serves as the backdrop to so many special memories and moments, and the Garden of Time gives everyone a chance to mark them in a way that tastefully integrates the landscape.

Be part of the Garden

We’re currently in the first phase of developing the Garden of Time, and there are a range of ways you can mark a memory or recognise a loved one. These include:

Engrave a path stone

The path leading into the Garden of Time will be made of large, locally-designed Caithness path-stones. You’re invited to adopt one of these stones and have a name engraved on it.

Donate towards sculptures

We’ve identified a range of sculptures to include in the Garden of Time, all of which complement the landscape and fit within the ethos of the garden. You can be a part of the garden’s creation by making a donation towards the acquisition of sculptures.

Adopt a tree

The garden will include an avenue of lime trees leading towards Airthrey Castle, each one with a hand-crafted stainless steel leaf that can be engraved to your specifications when you adopt a tree.

How to Donate

If you’d like to purchase a path stone, adopt a tree or support the acquisition of sculptures for the Garden of Time, please contact alumni@stir.ac.uk for details. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the development of the garden and mark their memories.
