Looking for a new home in Stirlingshire?
Stirlingshire – or the County of Stirling - is the proud county home to one of Scotland’s most iconic lochs – Loch Lomond – which it shares with neighbouring Dunbartonshire.
The county takes a central position above Glasgow and Edinburgh, with the Firth of Clyde and the Firth of Forth just over its boundary line to the south, and the Trossachs National Park gives away more than a hint of the highlands to the north.
Stirling is the administrative centre here and it’s in a great position for the overland routes from Edinburgh and Glasgow up into central and northern Scotland. It’s the southern part of the county that has the highest population and the main east-west road and rail routes, whereas the mid and north of the county is beautifully rural. As well as Stirling, the other main towns include Dunblane and Bannockburn, Lennoxtown and Kilsyth.
The main railway network connects the towns along the southern border to Edinburgh, Cumbernauld and Perth, while the M80 and the M9 serve the southeast part of the county.
A new home in Stirlingshire offers easy access to the Capital of Scotland and the Capital of Culture as well as to some increasingly dramatic and rugged countryside to explore as you head north – all the way up to the western tip of Loch Tay. You’ll have everything that’s the best of Scotland in this conveniently placed county.
