Very well preserved town house, with lots of history going back years. One could imagine the family living there.

We were walking back to our car after our Stirling Castle tour when a man approached us saying our tickets to the castle also included a tour of this large house. It is well laid out and very interesting. Need about an hour to do it well

Set just outside of the car park to Stirling Castle as you head downhill for the town is this house and it is part of your Stirling Castle ticket. This is a very impresive building which has had many add on builds over the years. It is semi furnished in period. We did not know this was part of our... More

Beautiful place included in the ticket price of the castle. A real must see because it is so lovely inside. There are different things to read in each room and always someone on hand to help if you have any questions. All of whom are incredibly knowledgeable.

This part of the 'castle' is easily missed. You get free entry with your castle ticket. You get to see both upstairs and downstairs (servants areas) guides are all helpful. Don't miss while you visit the castle, it's set just outside the walls.

Your ticket to the castle gets you into this old home. Very interesting and an easy thing to add on the day you visit the castle. There are steps if you find them difficult. We really enjoyed the visit to this well preserved mansion. The church over the road is a must do as well.

Free admission with a Stirling Castle ticket and worth a visit. Argyll's Lodging is situated across the road from the castle car park as you are walking down the hill into town. Visiting this old mansion house wont take up much of your time but is still worth a visit and provides an interesting history.

Included in your admission to the castle, Argyll's Lodging is worth a quick visit to see a 17th Century town house.

Argyll's Lodging is located a block or so from Stirling Castle and free with admission to Stirling Castle or the Explorer Pass. It is just a home that has been preserved. Not a whole lot to see and it only took us 10 minutes to walk through. Not really worth the time but if you have an extra 10 minutes,... More
