Where is s/he working? I assume for £35k as a new graduate in Stirling itself itll be at the Pru or business park? In which case its v near the park and ride.

Top of the town (around the Castle) can be a bit grim, although its probably where Id choose if I didnt have a car (no parking!), didnt want to share (its relatively affordable) and I wanted to be in town. Dunno if air BnB has changed the cost now though.
The area around Tesco is v studenty. Kings Park is v expensive. Raploch has reputation as being rough as fuck but in reality has changed a lot. Riverside, Cornton, etc I dont rrally know. Braehead always seems a bit dull. I quite like Denny, but in DC position Id rather be in town.
Outside Stirling, Cambusbarron is nice, just about walkable home from Stirling but would be better with a car. Difficult to meet people locally as isnt big. Bridge of Allan (where uni is), and Dunblane both nice but more like small towns and expensive.
