Living in Stirling   


Whilst no longer the capital city of Scotland, there is no doubt that Stirling today remains the heritage capital of Scotland. Once a royal residence and the setting for the Wars of Independence, Stirling has a rich and vibrant history and today is a beautiful city located in the heart of Scotland’s central belt.

Living in Stirling provides the best of both worlds. The lively modern city is connected to the Old Town via the heritage mile, where cobbled streets, Victorian iron work and Medieval and Renaissance churches and mansions can be admired. Stirling Castle also dominates the city, and today stands as one of the most important castles in Scotland both historically and architecturally. Open to the public, it falls high on the list of places to visit when living in or visiting the city. 

Residents of Stirling also have access to a shopping centre, retail park as well as several supermarkets - Aldi, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose are all to be found in the city meaning useful amenities are well within reach for residents of the city. For those that like to spend time outdoors, just 30 minutes away from the city centre lies Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The park is famous for its spectacular scenery, and visitors can get involved with many different activities, such as golf, water activities, cycling or climbing. It’s not surprising that current residents note that for both a country and city balance, Stirling is ideal. 

The city is also well connected by rail - Edinburgh is just under an hour away whilst the quickest train to Glasgow will see you there in 32 minutes, and road links for Stirling include the M9 and A9. Also, for those looking to move with children or wanting to start a family in the future, Stirling’s primary and secondary schools fall into the good, very good and excellent categories, making the city a great choice for families.
