Argyll's Lodging is included in the admission price to Stirling Castle. Don't miss it! It is well worth a visit. We went in September at a time when they weren't providing official guided tours, but our self-guided tour was fascinating nonetheless. We were able to roam the house at our leisure. Only a few other visitors were there. The townhouse... More

Argyll's Lodging is part of the Stirling Castle experience and should not be missed - esp. by Canadians considering the Canadian connection! We had a fantastic guide and learned a lot.

This house is just outside Stirling Castle and admission is included with admission to the Castle. Staff there knew their history and while it is not a large place, it was interesting to see how people lived there. Of particular interest, all the doorways were low so I thought everyone was short, lol, but they were actually very tall people.... More

Very attractive historical residence and nicely presented. Enjoyed the visit even though it wasn't the primary purpose of the trip to Stirling.

Good and interesting, but makes more sense to visit it as part of the Stirling Castle visit (ticket included in the price).

There are live guides who give you an introduction to this house and you can view some of the rooms which are furnished and the old kitchens to see where the servants had to cook for the family,all very interesting and comes included with your castle admission ,so well worth a visit.

We enjoyed looking through this 17th century noblemans grand home which have a good insight to the dwellings of gentry at that time. The home has been well restored. It is worth a visit and an entry ticket to Stirling Castle also covers entry to Argyll's Lodgings.

A 17th century townhouse right next door to Stirling Castle. Like the castle itself, some of the restoration efforts actually undermine the experience by replacing one's imagination of what may have been with a mediocre reproduction. If you're going to Stirling Castle, it's worth taking a 15 minute walkthrough (as others have stated, admission is included with the castle). That... More
