AMAST 2002


The conference will be held at the University of Stirling (Customised AMAST map (large), how to get here).

Nestling in lowland greenery of rolling hills and farmland, the former town of Stirling was named as Scotland's newest city as part of Her Majesty the Queen's Jubilee Celebrations in 2002. Stirling, whose name signifies "place of strife", sits on the narrow waistband of Scotland's central belt. Stirling Castle, once the residence of Scottish Kings, perches atop a long extinct volcano, trailing behind it the exquisite architecture and cobbled streets of Stirling's Old Town, both castle and cobbles testament to Scotland's more troubled past.

It was here that William Wallace - the Braveheart - and Robert the Bruce won independence for Scotland. In memorial was built the William Wallace Monument, while Bruce's historic victory is vividly remembered at the Bannockburn Heritage Centre. In more peaceful times Stirling wears its historic importance lightly, and travellers are as likely to come to Stirling for its contemporary shopping as they are to visit the Victorian prison.

Further information can be obtained from Argyll, the Isles, Loch Lomond, Stirling and Trossachs Tourist Board, who kindly helped us with the images of the local area above for the website.
