Welcome to the Stirling Chamber and to the Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce website.

Stirling’s central location at the heart of Scotland, and its strategic transport networks, allows good access to markets in Scotland and beyond, making it an excellent place to do business.
Stirling is rooted in cultural history, and attracts many tourists with its strong historic links to two of Scotland’s most iconic heroes, William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. The city provides a gateway to the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, and to the Highlands. Significant investment is being made in a number of Stirling’s key visitor attractions, including the Bannockburn Heritage Centre. The recent £12m investment in refurbishment of the renaissance palace at Stirling Castle is already having an economic impact, with a significant increase in visitors to the castle since the refurbishment was completed.
Stirling is home to Scotland’s University of Sporting Excellence and the Sporting Chance Initiative, a nation-wide project to link businesses involved in development of sporting products and services with expertise in higher education institutio.It has a relatively diverse economy which has helped it to withstand the worst of the recession and place itself in a good position to capitalise on opportunities emerging from economic recovery. It has existing strengths in creative industries and environmental and clean technologies.
