Sir Philip Mowbray or Philip de Mowbray was a Scottish gentleman and Governor of Stirling Castle in the 14th century.

He was the son of Sir Geoffrey Mowbray by a daughter of Red John Comyn, Justiciary of Scotland. Philip married Eve, Lady Redcastle. During the Wars of Scottish Independence, he made a deal with Edward Bruce, the King's younger brother, which led to the Battle of Bannockburn. He was subsequently killed alongside Edward Bruce at the Battle of Faughart in 1318.[1]
