Welcome to our hostel

Behind the classical frontage of historic Erskine Marykirk lies the modern building of Stirling Youth Hostel, set in its own grounds and with extensive views over the town and surrounding countryside. Just a few minutes’ walk from the historic Stirling Castle on its crag, with magnificent views over the surrounding area.
A short distance from the William Wallace Monument, the hostel is a great base for groups looking to get out in the open and discover the beauty of the area with many hill walks and cycle routes nearby. The popular Blair Drummond Safari Park is easily accessible by car, for a fun day out and the hostel is only a five minute walk into the city centre where you can find excellent shopping, cafes, restaurants, bars and nightlife.
For golf enthusiasts, Stirling Youth Hostel is less than 20 miles from Gleneagles, offering ideal budget accommodation for the nearby championship course. Stirling is also home to many fine churches, including the sturdy little Gothic St John's, just a short walk from the hostel. And Monty Python fans will be in for a treat when they realise they're a short drive from Castle Doune, which appeared 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail'.
Renowned for its University, Stirling has plenty to offer groups looking to soak up the Scottish atmosphere. And with a reputation for sports excellence there are many exceptional facilities within the area. So if you are planning a visit to Stirling with your group, or looking to find a central hub for visits to both Glasgow and Edinurgh, both within easy commute, then why not make an enquiry today at our hostel here
