This award-winning hotel is located in the center of old Stirling, on the road leading up to the iconic Stirling Castle. Magnificently restored following a complete refurbishment, the Historic Scotland category B listed building with its classical Georgian frontage dates from circa 1825 when it was originally built as a bank. In the late 19th century it was converted to an Infirmary and remained in that use for 50 years before being utilized for a range of purposes including a library and offices. Lovingly reinstated, the building was returned to its former glory and opened its doors as a hotel in 2014.
