With a population of almost 100,000, the bustling city of Stirling provides a great community for city life, with the tranquility of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park only 30 minutes away. When you come to Stirling, you may never want to leave.
The University campus is based in Bridge of Allan, just outside Stirling city.
The town developed as a spa resort in the 19th century when visitors to the Trossachs began to increase. Authors Robert Louis Stevenson and Charles Dickens were regular visitors at the height of the resort’s popularity. Many of its original fine Victorian villas and public buildings are preserved, evidence of its once prosperous past.
