Lying at the mouth of the River Forth and historically renowned as the ‘Gateway to the Highlands’, Stirling was once the capital of Scotland and is now the largest city in Central Scotland with a population of approximately 90,000.
Stirling House Prices
The successful economy in the area, coupled with a relatively low level of house price inflation, has led to Stirling being recognised as the most affordable city in the UK, with average house prices standing at only 3.3 times the average wage in the area. However, this phenomenon has yet to drive up prices in the area, which were down 6% in June compared to the same month last year.
Stirling Culture & Economy
As well as being one of the flattest, the Carse of Stirling is also one of the most arable areas of land in Scotland and the resultant agriculture that has arisen from this meant that Stirling has historically functioned as a market town, as evidenced by its Mercat Cross. Stirling is now a major retail centre, with the Thistles Shopping Centre, Springkerse Retail Park and the large amount of big chain shops in the town centres being the main retail centres. The financial and tourism sectors are also highly represented in the city, as is the agriculture sector, though nowhere near the level to which it was previously.
Large employers in Stirling include the University of Stirling, Stirling Council, several research and development firms which have spun off from the University and are located at the Stirling University Innovation Park, Police Scotland, Scottish Prison Service, NHS Forth Valley, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and the Ogilvie Group.
Stirling Tradition & History
Stirling, the largest city in Central Scotland, is almost haphazardly clustered around the Medieval town and fortress from where it grew. Stirling has been settled since the Stone Age, as is evidenced by the Randolphfield standing stones and Kings Park prehistoric carvings, both of which are still presently displayed south of the city.
Its military significance has been recorded since Roman times, which is unsurprising given the fact that it possesses a naturally defensible crag and tail hill and commands a dominant position at the foot of the Ochil Hills, near to the Highland Boundary Fault, on the border between the Lowlands and Highlands, at the lowest crossing point of the River Forth. The severity of the contrast in the two landscapes which Stirling strides is evidenced when one views the Carse of Stirling to the east and west of the city, which constitutes the flattest expanse of land in all of Scotland, and then compares it to the rise in altitude represented by hills and mountains such as Ben Vorlich and Ben Ledi, which lie to the northwest.
Stirling is widely believed to equate with Iuddeu or Urbs Giudi, the fortress which Bede tells us was besieged by Penda of Mercia, and defended by Oswiu of Northumbria, in 655 CE. Stirling’s wealth grew steadily during the Medieval period, principally due to the ford, and then bridge, over the River Forth, which allowed Stirling to amass a fortune in tolls. Stirling remained an important inland port right up until the coming of the railways in 1848.
Having been granted its charter as a Royal Burgh by David I in 1130, Stirling played a major role in the Wars of Scottish Independence when, as well as being laid siege to on multiple occasions, it was the setting for arguably the most famous battle in Scottish history, the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297, the most renowned of William Wallace’s victories over the English. Later, in 1314, the nearby town of Bannockburn was the site of another contender for the title of Scotland’s most famous battle.
Stirling has also played a major part in several other famous conflicts, notably the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and the Jacobite Risings. Stirling’s two oldest buildings, its eponymous castle and the Church of the Holy Rude, are staple attractions for tourists visiting the city.
