Stirling is one of Scotland's most historic cities, which many major battles for Scottish independence took place in and around. Once the capital of Scotland, the city is surrounded by a large medieval fortress now mixed in with a contemporary, university town. Lush and green, Stirling is often called "The Gateway to the Highlands." The city is extremely student-oriented, pedestrian friendly, and offers all of the amenities of a large cosmopolitan city. The once majestic medieval castle situated in the heart of the city now serves as a local concert and arts venue. This combination between old and new gives the city a sort of magical feel that visitors will always remember. The city itself sits atop rolling hills and situated near a beautiful loch inhabited with local wildlife. It is also only about 45 minutes by train from Glasgow or Edinburgh giving students easy access to both cities for a day of exploration.
