Airthrey Loch and Castle
Airthrey Loch is put to good use for kayaking and canoeing, and the 2.5km path around its banks is perfect for a peaceful stroll or morning jog – as well as organised events such as our Halloween fun run. A walkway over the water connects student accommodation with the main campus atrium, giving you a chance to soak in the views every day as the seasons change in spectacular style.
Underscoring the uniqueness of our beautiful campus, the five-star facilities at Stirling come bundled with an 18th century castle. Overlooking the University loch, Airthrey Castle was built in 1791 to a design by influential architect Robert Adam, and has served as everything from a grand residence to a maternity hospital in the years since.
