Stirlingshire is a historic county in central Scotland bordered to the north by Perthshire and the south by Lanarkshire and Dunbartonshire. Were it not for a few miles of land occupied by Dunbartonshire at its western side, Stirlingshire would stretch all the way from the Firth of Forth to the Firth of Clyde. The town of Stirling is located at its eastern side, 22 miles (35 km) north east of Glasgow and 30 miles (50 km)north west of Edinburgh.
Both the east and the west of Stirlingshire come within the catchment areas of Scotland’s two major cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow, although there are few large concentrations of population within the county area itself. Stirling’s population is only around 20,000. The best prospects for anyone seeking Head of Logistics jobs in Stirlingshire is to look to the cities and the larger towns that occupy the land between them, although similar positions have been filled in the past within the county area.
