Located close to the centre of Stirling, the gateway to the Highlands, Stirling Highland Hotel has panoramic views over the Forth Valley. From the aptly named Headmaster's Study bar and Scholar's Restaurant to the transformed classrooms, this 19th-century property retains key features from its past as a high school, including a working observatory and a rooftop telescope that was installed in 1889.

The hotel is just a few minutes' walk from historic Stirling Castle, which Lonely Planet lists as one of the top experiences in Europe, and Argyll's Lodging, which has won praise for being the "most impressive 17th-century townhouse" in Scotland. Glasgow is 35 minutes' drive from the hotel and Edinburgh is an hour away.

A trip to the Headmaster's Study will lead you to a cosy whisky bar, serving indulgent afternoon tea alongside an extensive cocktail menu. For fine dining, head to the AA-Rosette-awarded Scholar's Restaurant, which is made up of three grand rooms with vaulted ceilings and high windows. You'll find both traditional and international dishes here, with locally sourced Scottish produce used where possible. Other facilities include an extensive fitness suite, a health club, a swimming pool and five beauty rooms specialising in Decléor treatments. There is also an on-site whisky shop, should you want to take a wee dram home with you.

In contrast to the traditional décor of the hotel's public areas, which serve as a reminder of the property's high-school years, the bedrooms are distinctly more contemporary. The AA Hotel Guide 2014 describes them as "modern in style and comfortably equipped" Wi-Fi is free throughout.
