About Stirling Youth Hostel

Built behind the facade of a historic church next to the old town jail, we offer superb en-suite rooms, modern facilities and a friendly international atmosphere.

Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling is steeped in history. Local attractions include Stirling Castle on its crag (just a few minutes walk uphill from the hostel), The Wallace Monument, Bannockburn Visitor Centre, Doune Castle and Castle Campbell.

Head downhill and you're right in the city centre with its shops, cafés, restaurants, bars and nightlife. Stirling is also midway between Edinburgh and Glasgow, making it a great place to stay for visiting the rest of central Scotland.
