Stirling is a quaint, picturesque city that is dripping with history. The narrow cobblestone streets and large fortress will take you back in time. Stirling is also known as the Gateway to the Highlands, and it's where William Wallace, Scotland's national hero, famously defeated the English at the Battle of Stirling Bridge. Stirling is the country’s capital for government and higher education, making it an ideal place to study abroad.
Scotland's breathtaking landscapes will truly amaze you—enjoy day trips to the surrounding regions or try to spot the elusive Loch Ness monster in the Scottish Highlands. Don't be spooked, but Stirling is home to the famous Stirling Castle, which is rumored to be haunted!
With a population of 35,000, Stirling offers city comforts in a small, safe environment. You'll find a theater, pubs, restaurants, and clubs. You can easily access the city center from campus by regular bus service, or by walking or biking. The bustling and vibrant cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow are 45 and 30 minutes away by train, respectively. Or, you can snag inexpensive flights to other European destinations.
