  • Worth see the building outside and dare to do the tour. It is very entertaining, time goes flying. We had fun and learned a lot. Not go without climbing the Tower, there are incredible views of Stirling and the guide told us many interesting things in the city

  • Amazing tour, the guide is quite a decent actor and you'll not regret visiting the place, you'll take part in a reenactment of bits of history of this interesting place, at the end you'll be taken to the tower which has a beautiful view of the surrounding area, a definite must see if you're in Stirling
  • Interesting looking stop but it was unexpectedly closed when we arrived in late June. No reason was given why but it will open again in July I think.
  • It was shut when I visited but will certainly be back to check it out another time, looks to be an interesting place
  • Was good but need more things to do in it for kids.
  • Something different and also interesting. Not a huge place compared to Stirling Castle which is more value for money in that respect.
