This is a great attraction. A bit smaller than the Castle but very interesting nevertheless. You get a combined ticket with the Castle, so do go and see this place too.

A must to finish off the visit to the castle. Fascinating, well laid out and informative staff. Walk down the hill afterwards for some excellent restaurants.

If you have been to Stirling Castle, then you get free access to this old mansion house. It's on the left hand side if the road as you walk down the road from the castle to the old town. Quite interesting to see how the wealthy of the day lived. Not worth paying to see it on its own

Located near Stirling Castle it is easy to find and worth a visit. The young man on duty was so friendly with a big smile on his face. The rooms are bright and well set out with plenty of information about the history of the house. Definitely recommend a visit if you go to the castle.

Too many visitors to Stirling castle overlook this gem. It is adjacent to the castle and is very interesting to tour. It gives you a great view of what life was like at the time.

This house doesn't take too long to get through... we toured after the Castle tour so we didn't want to spend hours anyways. Has some really great old pieces, the stairs and the upstairs wall for instance. Well worth looking in and won't take up too much time so an easy yes!!!

A visit here is free if you present your ticket from Stirling Castle. I don't know if I would pay to go in otherwise, but it was really fun to explore!

Your Stirling Castle ticket includes this house, so drop in and see it. It give a good idea of how lesser nobility lived. Guided tours are available and Ross gave us an excellent tour.

We were "encouraged" to come in for a visit since the admission was included with Stirling Castle. It was not crowded and was set up to represent how it was in its original state. Loved the first indoor loo! You could picture royal family members heaving their fancy dresses to fit into it! Well done,relaxed,interesting, really could picture life as... More

Well worth calling in for a look. The staff are very helpful and will show you around if you'd like. Chatting to one I was told of hauntings by the former resident. :-S
