Torbrex is a small former weaving village in the Stirling Council Area, Scotland. Torbrex lies a mile (1.5 km) to the southwest of Stirling, between Cambusbarron and St Ninians. Consisting mainly of 19th-century cottages, it has among its older buildings Torbrex House (1721) and Williamsfield House (1682), which was built in 1682 by William Wordie of Torbrex.
The old High School of Stirling was located here and an extension, adjoining the Sports Ground and known as the New High School, was built in 1962. Stirling High School is located on the St. Ninians/Livlilands side of Torbrex.
