Very beautiful lodging

So you can't actually stay here, but you can see how the wealthy stayed hundreds of years ago. Very beautiful and re-created back to its logical time.

Was a fantastic place to visit as my partner has many memories of this place from when she was a little girl. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and even let us out into the garden (which wasn't part of the tour). Very emotional return for her (in a good way).Loved every minute of it.

Free to enter with Stirling castle admission ticket which is 200 yards up hill so leave car at castle and walk down to this as there is no parking.Not a great deal to impress inside but worth a visit. Not convinced everything inside was genuine.

Tickets for Stirling Castle also give access to this attraction. Not so spectacular as the castle, but interesting and printed guides available in several languages.

This venue is included in the entrance ticket to Stirling Castle. It is a short walk from the castle car park on the left hand side returning to the town. It is a fascinating house and tracking the historic changes over the years is most interesting and gives an insight into how life used to be lived. Kitchens, bedrooms and... More

you can spend a good 30-45 minutes at Argyll's Lodging which is located within walking distance of the Striling Castle. The architecture, the furniture and decoration are really worth the visit.

This is a place that you can easily guide yourself through. It is a humble cottage with incredible furnishings from the time period of the 9th Earl of Argyll. It took us less than an hour to go through, take photos, and the guides were very humble and engaging with us.

It felt haphazardly put together because they had to preserve the house itself. The inside is extensively renovated with empty rooms.
