You can only explore a couple of rooms, but they do give you a good sense of what life was like when this house was originally inhabited. Also, some of the original wall painting is still preserved upstairs.

Only a few other visitors were there. The townhouse... More

Argyll's Lodging is part of the Stirling Castle experience and should not be missed - esp. by Canadians considering the Canadian connection! We had a fantastic guide and learned a lot.

This house is just outside Stirling Castle and admission is included with admission to the Castle. Staff there knew their history and while it is not a large place, it was interesting to see how people lived there. Of particular interest, all the doorways were low so I thought everyone was short, lol, but they were actually very tall people.... More

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.
