Stirling first joined the railway network in 1848, but today trains to the ÔGateway to the Highlands' arrive at a 1915 building by the famous Scottish architect James Miller. Stirling is well connected for destinations across Scotland, with regular services to Dundee, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness. It is also a stop on the famous Caledonian Sleeper service from London Euston.

The medieval heart of Stirling is known as the ÔTop of the Town', and its atmospheric streets are home to many restaurants, pubs and hotels, as well as attractions such as the Old Town Jail, where you will also find the tourist office. The walk from the station through the old town to Stirling Castle, the town's iconic fortress, is fairly steep and takes about 15 minutes. The Thistles, the main shopping centre in Stirling, is just south of the station.
