This was a cool place to visit. We were actually invited in as we walked by and were very glad that we were. We were just passing by and would not have stopped otherwise and we were very pleasantly surprised.

Thousands probably walk right passed this magnificent town house on the walk back down from Stirlinjg Castle. Luckily one of the custodians was out on the pavement inviting passers-by to visit. A fascinating house with informative displays - a real gem of social history.

Free entry on production of tickets to Stirling Castle. This house has deliberately been maintained in it's original state. You get a real feel for it's history. Only takes 20 mins or so, but nonetheless interesting.

We weren't aware of the building until walking back down from the castle and being invited in by a member of staff. I think they need to make it more evident on purchase of the castle tickets that this attraction is also included. It's been very sympathetically restored after its last use as a youth hostel but I was unsure... More

We weren't blown away but worth a look. A couple of displays and some original features dating way back. There could probably be a little more information inside. The 'ushers' are knowledgeable and the friendliest I have come across so far.

We really loved this 17th century town house. It had not been mucked about with and was almost in its original state. We had a very good and knowledgeable guide who spun a good tale full of facts and it was a thoroughly enjoyable 2-3 hours.

Its just down the road from the castle and included within your castle ticket price. We were lucky to participate in the guided tour. Its quite a beautiful house but the purple velvet covered bedroom especially the velvet covered lavatory seat was very interesting.......I would agree that there was nothing super exciting about it but its a piece of history...

This 17th century townhouse is just down the street from Stirling Castle. A ticket to the castle gives you entry to the townhouse as well. The guides are very friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend talking to them about the history of the townhouse, because there is not a whole lot of posted information as you walk through.

This townhouse just down from the Castle in Stirling is a must visit. entrance is included in your Stirling castle ticket and is open from 12.45 to 4pm. I believe you can also visit for £2 per adult seperately. There was a small guided tour lasting for about 30 minutes (Charlie was our guide All rooms are furnished beautifully as... More
