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

The many uses of the home provide a great history of the local area. The home has seen many transformations and is a wonderful site to visit.

Only a percentage of people who visit the castle visit this historic and beautiful home. Free with ticket to Stirling Castle, but with limited hours. A short walk from the castle and only takes 20 min. to see. Large rooms of a wealthy family. Go if it is open.

This is an interesting 17th Century Townhouse and came free with the Stirling Castle ticket. It's worth taking a look on the way down to the rest of Stirling. Take a look at the impressive exterior too.

If you have the time and visit Stirling Castle, you might just as well visit here too. This is an interesting old house, home to several elite families and is certainly worth a quick tour. Just across from the castle.

This comes free with the Stirling castle ticket - it's a 17th century town house with reconstructed interiors, furnished and decorated according to accounts and inventories of the time. It'll take most people between 30 min and an hour to walk through, and is a lovely little jewel - not to be missed!

If you visit the castle you can also visit this lovely old mansion house. Just keep your castle entrance tickets and show them at the lodgings. Well worth a visit and just across the road from the castle.

Just down the road from Stirling Castle and free to enter with a Castle entry. A historical look at Kings and Queens then a walk through the apartments and kitchens. The apartments are equipped with reproduction furniture and furnishings but are authentically done. In one room there is the original wall which is amazing and the rest of the room... More

Entry to the house is included in the price of the Castle ticket, so you expect to find something really exciting, especially given the size of the building, but it's all a bit under-whelming. There's only a handful of rooms restored to something of what they used to be, but much of the house is either closed off or the... More
