Interesting and worth a visit

I stopped here on the way down from Stirling Castle. I'm pleased i did. This was an interesting divergence. The kitchens were facinating.

A good visiting place to understand something of the lifestyle of a noble. I like how they have kept the details of life real.

The entry to Argyll's Lodging is included in the entry fee to Stirling Castle, Just as well as it doesn't contain a huge amount to see or an awful lot of information. I hope Scottish Heritage do more to develop it as a site, perhaps opening up more rooms or access to the gardens

This is just a quick add on to Stirling Castle and is included in the price you pay (£14) to get into the Castle so you may as well take a gander!! We only spend 20-30 minutes there but it's nice to see how they lived back then.

Argyll's Lodging is a great place to visit in Stirling. Well preserved and presented. Not nearly as crowded as Stirling Castle.

A visit to Argyll's Lodging is included in your ticket for Stirling Castle and well worth a visit. The guide was particularly helpful in explaining the history and changes to the building over the years. I just loved the the four-poster bed; the purple fabric on this matches the walls and the commode! Best of all are the real fires... More

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.

After visiting Stirling Castle show your castle ticket to get free admission to Argyll's Lodging you will not be disappointed. It is on the left side of the road just below the castle esplanade. The mansion is the most complete surviving example of of a seventeenth century town house in Scotland and we were surprised and delighted to find it... More

Argyll's Lodging is included in the admission price to Stirling Castle. Don't miss it! It is well worth a visit. We went in September at a time when they weren't providing official guided tours, but our self-guided tour was fascinating nonetheless. We were able to roam the house at our leisure. Only a few other visitors were there. The townhouse... More
