Constituency Profile

The seat is named after Scotland's ancient capital of Stirling. It stretches from the eastern shores of Loch Lomond in the west, encompassing villages like Drymen, to tourist hubs like Callander and Crianlarich in the north before meeting the Falkirk West boundary just north of Torwood in the south. The former mining towns of Fallin, Cowie and Plean are included in the constituency.

Stirling has become synonymous with the historic battle which bears its name and is strongly associated with the national hero William Wallace. Agriculture is one of the main industries in the more rural part of the constituency. The area has a high number of educated professionals and is within commuting distance of both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Labour's Sylvia Jackson won the Holyrood seat in 1999, which she held in 2003. However, she was unseated in 2007 by the SNP's Bruce Crawford, who held it in the 2011 election.
