  • The Argyll's Lodging is included in the entrance fee to the Stirling Castle and it is worth taking a tour of the building to see how people lived hundreds of years ago. 
  • If you are visiting Stirling Castle you get in for free, you would be daft to turn down the opportunity. It's a lovely building and certainly worth a walk around.
  • The toilet is even the same it used to be! Brilliant renovation. My friend told me he slept there once as a backpacker as it was a backpackers hostel. And he told me what has changed and what stayed the same. And all the stories. So interesting.
  • A 17th century townhouse right next door to Stirling Castle. Like the castle itself, some of the restoration efforts actually undermine the experience by replacing one's imagination of what may have been with a mediocre reproduction. If you're going to Stirling Castle, it's worth taking a 15 minute walkthrough (as others have stated, admission is included with the castle). That said, if you're short on time, I'd prioritized the graveyard at the Church of the Holy Rude instead (across the street).
