Historic home of the Graham family which is now at the centre of the University of Stirling

Airthrie Castle and estate first appears in documents around 1370 and passed through different hands before becoming part of the graham estate and then afterwards to Earl of Hope of Hopetoun House fame. 

The present structure was designed by the architect Robert Adam in 1791 although the house and estate were sold soon afterwards to the Abercrombies where it remained until rebought by the Grahams again in 1891. In the twentieth century it was used as a maternity hospital until becoming  the heart of the new University of Stirling in 1969.
