Persimmon Homes

Stirling

Stirling is one of Scotland’s ancient cities – it used to be the capital. In a central location, surrounded by farmland and within a reasonable distance of both Edinburgh and Glasgow, this is a fascinating and historic place to call home. Stirling has grown up as a market town, supporting the agricultural economy of central Scotland. It’s also regarded as a focal point for the area, for shopping, education, industry, communication and transport. The castle dominates the skyline and is a great tourist attraction. With all these different aspects to its life, including a famous university, Stirling is a thriving city with amenities to match. A new home here has many advantages, providing families and professionals with a wide range of interests and opportunities.

Transport

The M9 to Edinburgh passes to the west of Stirling, with the M80 branching off just below Bannockburn on its way to Glasgow. Stirling to Edinburgh is 40 miles and to Glasgow it’s 26 miles. Stirling’s train station is another option for regional and national travel with services operated by ScotRail and LNER. There’s a direct service to London Kings Cross.

The great outdoors

With Stirling as your home base and its apt title as the Gateway to the Highlands, exploring is going to be on the agenda. You’ll be within each reach of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, and to the north, you’ll be well on the way to the dramatic Cairngorms for mountain climbing and skiing.

Education

Students are well catered for in Stirling. As well as a wide range of primary options, there are four main high schools, further education at the Forth Valley College and higher education at Stirling University. With the sports and leisure activities that go alongside student life, it’s a wonderful place for young people.
