You can look at the carpark and a bit past it to part of the courtyard. That's why you're getting mixed answers here. Compared to Edinburgh Castle, where you can easily walk or drive around it through the city, getting around Stirling isn't possible. If you want to look at Stirling Castle, there's not a lot to see past the very modern carpark.
