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

After the almost overwhelming amount of reproduction and information in Sterling Castle this additional 'treat' comes as a calming delight (except for the very very purple rooms). Your ticket price for the castle includes this historic building, which is a short walk from the castle enterence

Much more interesting than the Stirling castle (visit with the same entry ticket). Beautiful interiors with many things to admire. A must-see in Stirling!

If you are going to Stirling Castle, this is just down from the parking lot at the castle. Your ticket to the castle includes admission here. The size of the place is really pretty large, especially for the times. There aren't a lot of furnishings, but the architectural details are interesting.

Well worth a visit. Very interesting and you can go round the house in a group with a guide which is good and interesting. Enjoyable afternoon out

This is a large house with an interesting history, but only a handful of rooms are open to visitors. I would have loved to see the second floor or the garden, but no dice. It's not surprising they offer free admission to anyone who has been to Stirling Castle and have someone on the pavement hooking people in. I really... More

A must to finish off the visit to the castle. Fascinating, well laid out and informative staff. Walk down the hill afterwards for some excellent restaurants.

This is a great attraction. A bit smaller than the Castle but very interesting nevertheless. You get a combined ticket with the Castle, so do go and see this place too.

If you have been to Stirling Castle, then you get free access to this old mansion house. It's on the left hand side if the road as you walk down the road from the castle to the old town. Quite interesting to see how the wealthy of the day lived. Not worth paying to see it on its own
