Stirling, United Kingdom

Travel to Stirling

Stirling is a small city in the Central Belt of Scotland; it's the county town of Stirlingshire. For centuries this was the main route between the Highlands and the Lowlands, guarded by the castle on its battleship of a crag, and with the River Forth sweeping round as a moat. The Scots won two famous victories against the English on the nearby fields, at Stirling Bridge and at Bannockburn. Medieval Scottish rulers made it their residence and capital.

The city limits also include Bridge of Allan, the village north of the river which is now the campus for Stirling University, and Dunblane further north. They're described on their own pages.
