Christmas & Hogmanay 2019


Christmas & Hogmanay in Stirling

Celebrate the festive season in style with Stirling Court Hotel with our calendar of family events, renowned Christmas party nights and sparkling Hogmanay celebrations.

Set in the stunning 330 acre grounds of the University of Stirling, we are perfectly placed in the very heart of Scotland and less than an hour from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee. Nestled beneath the Ochil hills and uniquely positioned at the foot of the towering Wallace Monument, our panoramic setting is gorgeous at any time of year, and simply breath-taking in the winter.

Our enticing menus are carefully created using seasonally-produced and locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.

Whether you plan to join us for memory making Santa lunches, want to dance the night away at one of our sell-out Christmas party nights, or take a well-earned Hogmanay retreat this year, celebrate in sparkling style at the Stirling Court Hotel. We look forward to making this an extra special year for you and your guests.
