  • Stirling was covered in snow and it looked like an old fashioned Christmas card. Views of the surrounding countryside.  more »
  • This Argyle is Pink is a little bit down from the castle walls and castle-like buildings. It is a lovely building in Stirling in the Scottish capital is building a little wacky, but has become a street accent.

  • Only mentioning in case someone is looking forward to this attraction. When we visited (twice) it stated the lodging was closed due to restoration work. We wouldn't have gone a 2nd time if we'd had kn...  more »

  • Had a lovely tour guide explain the house and it's history. It has some great features and the restorations are amazing. Not sure it would have been as good without the enthusiasm of our guide, she was very knowledgeable and really interested in history. I can imagine that we might have been underwhelmed if we just wandered about so I highly recommend taking one of the free tours.
  • Personally find it more interesting than the nearby Stirling Castle, if only it were larger with more to see and explore
  • I was pretty underwhelmed. There is nothing very unique to see. Admission is included with your ticket to Stirling Castle and it's a good thing because I can't imagine there being any other reason people would visit. I would not go back simply because there is nothing interesting to see. The staff were very nice though and even pointed out the beaver above the front door after I told them I am Canadian.
  • As you can get free entry as part of your entry to Stirling Castle this is a great place to visit and soak up some of the old history that is part of this building. You can visit the old kitchens and marvel at the space they had to cook and the fact that they were able to feed so many with so little. You can view the headquarters, the rooms and get a feeling for how they must have lived and what it must have been living in those days. Definitely worth a visit
  • We had left Sterling Castle and stopped for lunch at the Portcullis when we were stopped on our way down the hill and told about this place. This house has a really rich and interesting history, the guys working there were all really knowledgeable and super nice. This is a must add to your itinerary if you're visiting Sterling.
