Stirling, an ancient fortress city that guarded the major crossing of the River Forth, is located in the center of Scotland, between Glasgow and Edinburgh. It has a long and colorful history, and many sixteenth- and seventeenth-century buildings have been preserved and still are used as homes, tourist sites, and restaurants. Stirling is dramatically positioned at the point where lowland and highland Scotland meet. This unique location offers easy access to the Highlands, which boast some of the most breathtaking scenery in Europe, and a wealth of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. The former royal residence of Stirling Castle is fast becoming an established concert venue. In the city center, there is an extensive modern shopping area, theatres, restaurants, rail and bus terminals, and the city is buzzing with student life. As part of her Golden Jubilee festivities in 2002, Queen Elizabeth granted “city status” to Stirling as a mark of special distinction, an honor only bestowed 17 times during the twentieth century.
