The historicity of Stirling, once the capital of Scotland and a royal stronghold, with its magnificent 10th-century castle, offers the traveller lots of things to see and do. As the gateway to the Highlands, or lowlands, depending on which way you are travelling, it a great base for touring. In addition to the castle, visit the Church of Holy Rude, built in 1129 and where James VI was anointed king. Today, the largest employers in the city are Stirling University and the local authority. In addition to tourism, Stirling is a centre for agriculture and financial services. The city offers good shopping, with the Thistle Shopping Centre, Craig's Shopping Area and a mixture of the usual high street names along with independents trading along Broad Street, Port Street, Dumbarton Road and other areas, some of which still have cobbled streets. Half of the population of Scotland live within one hour’s commute of Stirling, so it’s not surprising that the city has its share of eclectic restaurants and bars. Enterprise Rent-A-Car is situated just over a mile outside the city on the Springkerse Industrial Estate, close to the A905, and can be reached by public transport or taxi. Enterprise also offers a pick-up service.
