Thank you for your interest in considering our historic building as your next venue for hire. 

The Hospital Building dates back to 1661 and is one of Scotland’s rarest survival of 17th century burgh architecture and one of the finest buildings of its kind in Scotland. 

Cowane’s Hospital takes its name from its Stirling benefactor John Cowane, who came from a long-established family of wealthy merchants. When John died in 1633 he left much of his fortune to build “ane hospital or almshous” and to endow a charity which would support up to 12 elderly members of Stirling’s Merchants’ Guild. 

The building has recently undergone a three-year extensive renovation project, bringing much needed repairs to this historic building. The project has paved the way for the future use of the building, housing a permanent but flexible Exhibit, a Café and Events Space for small to medium sized gatherings. In addition to the building is the Terrace, a Bowling Green and Dutch Inspired Gardens, all boasting fantastic views across Stirling and beyond. 

If you require a venue that is rich in history with surroundings that are made for great joy and celebration, then look no further than Cowane’s.
