     Many of Scotland’s most famous tourist attractions lie within easy reach of the Vacation Campus.

     The University lies in the shadow of the Wallace Monument, a towering tribute to ‘Braveheart’, Sir William Wallace.
     Less than two miles away, dominating the skyline, is the spectacular Stirling Castle, from which one
     can gaze across Bannockburn, scene of Robert the Bruce’s epic victory in 1314.

     The ‘bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond’, and the rugged Highlands are easily accessible from Stirling’s central
     location; the vibrant and cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are each a mere 45 minutes’ drive away.

     In the following pages we have provided a selection of just some of the things to see and do during your stay.
