The staff were very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. This place is well worth a visit and you get in free with the castle tickets

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

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.
