Also Interesting; Your Stirling Castle Ticket Gets You In

Just down the hill toward town on the left, this is a wonderful old house. Aside from the lodging, there is a lot of history here - well worth a walk-through.

If you have time to see this after Stirling Castle, you really ought to do so to see some lovely furnishings. I just wish it opened earlier, as there was some wait time after an early visit to the castle. On the other hand, there is enough to do in the area to pass the time, like visiting the nearby...

This is to nice visit after the castle and is free as part of your stirling castle ticket. It is quite small and only takes 20 to 30 minutes.

Like many other places in Stirling, it is good to call in for a visit when visiting the castle. You will be through it in a very short time. Unfortunately, it is run by the National Trust for Scotland, whereas the castle is run by Historic Scotland so you need membership for both, otherwise it payment at the door.

This was a large town house used by the duke of argyll. It is situated about 300 metres down te hill after/ coming out of Stirling castle. There is little to see downstairs but the upstairs rooms with replica tapestry's, some nice furniture and rooms are well worth a quick visit. The good news is that if you keep your... More

Visited this as part of the ticket into the castle as it is located just outside the castle. We were disappointed that so much of the building was not open to the public which made the wander round this piece of Stirling's history brief. What was visible was interesting and informative and finished off our day well.

The Lodgings, which are a short walk down the hill from Stirling Castle, are included in the castle's price of admission. If you have the time, the Lodgings are worth visiting to learn about how a Renaissance family lived. Placards tell you the story and there are docents of which you can ask questions. There are, however, several more comprehensive... More

A lovely Renaissance noble dwelling, the original furnishings have been restored from two detailed inventories. Warm and inviting, guests can view not only the downstairs servants hall and kitchens, but the living quarters of the Earl of Argyll's family as well. Wall coverings, chairs, even the upholstered commodes have been recreated. Included in the ticket price with admission to Stirling... More
