Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with ISA Study Abroad in Stirling, Scotland
I gained great international experience; how to better live on my own and fend for myself; how to go out and not only make friends with those in my program, but also the individuals living in the culture; how to use the bus system; what a public school feeling was like; and so much more! It was 100% worthwhile! - Concordia University Nebraska View Entire Review

About

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.
