Office accommodation in historic Stirling building marketed for let

A 158 sq ft office in the west wing of Stirling’s Cowane’s Hospital is being marketed for let by DM Hall.

Situated below Stirling Castle and opposite the Church of the Holy Rude where King James VI was crowned, and known also as the Guild Hall, Cowane’s Hospital was established in 1637 with a bequest of 40,000 merks from the estate of merchant John Cowane, also referred to as Auld Staney Breeks.

It is considered by Historic Scotland to be ‘a rare survival of 17th century burgh architecture and one of the finest buildings of its kind in Scotland’. The gardens are also seen as a ‘rare survival’ of an institutional garden of the 17th century and were included in the national inventory of gardens and designed landscapes in 2012.

Following a refurbishment and conservation project which began in 2019 by Cowane’s Hospital Trust, the main event space is now available to hire for boutique weddings, meetings, musical gatherings, ceilidhs, and private functions.

Jennifer Campbell, head of rural agency at DM Hall, said, “This is a unique opportunity for someone, perhaps an artist or a writer, to occupy and draw inspiration in a unique historic environment with stunning views of both the garden and the city of Stirling.”
