Our Hotel

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

Our Stirling 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-yearold 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.
