City of Stirling
Are you ready to discover Stirling?
We’re proud to call Stirling our home - a city shaped by its unique history, with a lively arts scene and the beauty of a national park close by.
Our vibrant city is known as the ‘Gateway to the Highlands’. It combines the charm of a historic destination with the buzz of a young population - 20% of Stirling's population is aged between 16 and 29 years (National Records of Scotland 2016). With easy access to both Edinburgh and Glasgow (both around 50 minutes away by road or rail), you have the benefit of two of Scotland’s largest cities nearby for weekend adventures.
Stirling is in the perfect location if you want to make the most of what central Scotland has to offer. It’s a beautiful city and there’s loads to get stuck into both on and off campus, from sport, music or the arts – there’s something for everyone
