As part of Castle ticket.

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

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

This was included as part of your ticket to view Stirling Castle. We went in on our way down from the Castle, and I don't know what I was expecting, but I left it underwhelmed. Maybe because I found the castle so good.

Admission is included in that for Stirling Castle and it would not be worth paying extra to see inside this house. There are only a few rooms open to the public, and there is a limited amount to see.

Like most visitors, we went here as it is included in the Stirling Castle visit. Friendly staff and well presented displays make it a worthwhile experience. The house has an interesting history and it is explained in context of Stirling itself.

It was worth a quick run through it, but there wasn't much to see. Admission is included with Stirling Castle, so you may as well see what they do have. The furnishings were sparse with a few signs, but you can get a feel for what the house was like before and after the additions.

I had seen this house in a past visit and wondered what it would be like inside. At the moment, there are only a few rooms open to the public but it certainly gives you a look at the past. You can get a look around the main halls, old smaller kitchen and the larger new on built when the... More

This is an interesting property to visit as you can see the alterations that were made over its history. Informative staff to greet you. Free entry with a Stirling Castle ticket

There is not much time you can spend here but it is a fair addition to the visit to the castle. It is interested historical value and good for wander around for a short time before heading down to the city.

A good visiting place to understand something of the lifestyle of a noble. I like how they have kept the details of life real.
