Cowane's Hospital/Guildhall

All Stirling Council libraries, culture venues and community centres have been closed to adhere to Government advice on reducing social contact.

We hope to reschedule some of our events and all customers with existing tickets will be eligible for a refund / exchange. more info »

Cowane’s Hospital is one of Stirling’s, and Scotland’s, historic gems and is a wonderful place to hold an event, activity, meeting or celebration.

The beautiful hall and the gardens and bowling green are available for hire at reasonable rates. All funds raised from hiring the hospital go toward the running, upkeep and maintenance of the building.

Private viewings of the hall for schools, societies and others can be arranged for a small charge. A member of tour team can be available to give a guided tour and talk about the history of the almshouse, its founder John Cowane and our exciting plans for the future.
