An outstanding location

The University achieved a 5 star excellence award for its facilities

- (QS World Rankings, 2014)

Built in the shadow of the Ochil Hills, the Stirling campus is situated on a magnificent 330-acre estate, centred around a large loch and 18th-century Airthrey Castle.

The views around campus are breathtaking, particularly as the surrounding woodland changes colour dramatically with the seasons. The campus also attracts a variety of wildlife - ducks, rabbits and squirrels abound - which adds to the relaxed atmosphere.
