In accordance with Government guidelines, the Stirling Highland is now closed for commercial / leisure use until further notice.
At this difficult time, the health and well-being of our guests and employees is our number one priority.
We plan to re-open the hotel as soon as it is safe to do so.

Set within the beautiful, historic city of Stirling, The Stirling Highland Hotel is a charming Victorian building and fascinating observatory that perfectly reflects the rich heritage of the area — known as the gateway to the Highlands. Originally built as a school in 1854, the hotel lies within easy reach of both Glasgow and Edinburgh, and provides the perfect base for exploring the city of Stirling. Proud to be part of the Cairn Collection.

Combatting COVID-19: Our focus during these unprecedented times is to ensure the health and welfare of our customers and employees.

Our Hotel

The Stirling Highland Hotel offers a luxurious Highland retreat with 96 beautifully appointed rooms and an elegant restaurant, Scholar’s, which serves up seasonal produce daily.

Our spa is home to four tranquil treatment rooms, a 17 metre indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, steam room and a fully equipped gym with an extensive class timetable.

The Observatory

In 1889 Sir Henry Campbell Bannermann (who later went on to become prime minister in 1905) gifted the school an observatory. To this day the observatory is still in great working condition on the hotel rooftop and is often toured by our hotel guests as well as local guides, scouts and cubs.

We work closely with the astronomical society who are able to use this 130 year old telescope and give out tours on a voluntary basis. These tours act as the perfect addition to team building days, weekend breaks exploring Stirling, and amazing photo opportunities for weddings and events.
