City of Stirling and beyond
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’, and is a fantastic place to stay during your studies. 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.
With a population of almost 100,000, the bustling city of Stirling provides a great community for city life, with the tranquillity of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park only 30 minutes away. When you come to Stirling, you may never want to leave.
