Dance InformationStirling is a city and former ancient burgh in Scotland, and is at the heart of the wider Stirling council area.
The city is clustered around a large fortress and mediæval old-town beside the River Forth. Historically it was strategically important as the "Gateway to the Highlands", with its position near the boundary between the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands, and its crossing of the Forth, the nearest to the river mouth.
