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

Only part of the house is open to the public but we found it very interesting and educational. The entrance fee is included in your ticket for Stirling castle but the lodging is only open from 12.45 - 17.15.

If you are interested in the history of Stirling Castle this is interesting - particularly to get a flavour of how even the richest at that time lived in much worse circumstances really than we do now ! Although it is a large house on floor area ! They have found some of the original wall coverings/wall paper which is... More

This is a huge house included in the ticket price of Stirling castle. From the outside it is very impressive but inside there are just three rooms to visit plus virtually empty kitchens. Two rather portly guides are seated in the rooms and will answer your questions but it promised so much and was frankly rather a let down.
