Bridge of Allan, a short walk from campus, is one of Stirling’s hidden gems. This historic Spa Town is highly recommended as a place to visit on any trip to the area. There are a range of short walks, shops and cafes, restaurants and bars as well as a wide range of Victorian architecture – built when the village developed into a spa town during the Victorian era.
As well as this, many of Scotland’s most famous tourist attractions lie within easy reach of Stirling Venues’ campus. Less than two miles away, dominating the skyline, is the spectacular Stirling Castle, from which one can gaze across Bannockburn, scene of Robert the Bruce’s epic victory in 1314.
Loch Lomond and the rugged Highlands are also easily accessible from Stirling’s central location and the vibrant and cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are each just a mere 45 minutes’ drive away.
