We weren't blown away but worth a look. A couple of displays and some original features dating way back. There could probably be a little more information inside. The 'ushers' are knowledgeable and the friendliest I have come across so far.

“Warm and Cosy nicely preserved”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

We really loved this 17th century town house.
It had not been mucked about with and was almost in its original state.
We had a very good and knowledgeable guide who spun a good tale full of facts and it was a thoroughly enjoyable 2-3 hours.

“Purple velvet lavatory seat was interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

Its just down the road from the castle and included within your castle ticket price. We were lucky to participate in the guided tour. Its quite a beautiful house but the purple velvet covered bedroom especially the velvet covered lavatory seat was very interesting.......I would agree that there was nothing super exciting about it but its a piece of history worth visiting for ones interested....

“Nothing super exciting, but worth visiting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

This 17th century townhouse is just down the street from Stirling Castle. A ticket to the castle gives you entry to the townhouse as well. The guides are very friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend talking to them about the history of the townhouse, because there is not a whole lot of posted information as you walk through.

“9th Earl of Argyll townhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

This townhouse just down from the Castle in Stirling is a must visit. entrance is included in your Stirling castle ticket and is open from 12.45 to 4pm. I believe you can also visit for £2 per adult seperately. There was a small guided tour lasting for about 30 minutes (Charlie was our guide

All rooms are furnished beautifully as they looked during the period of the 17th century. some rooms hold a museum telling the history of the townhouse and families that lived here.

As it is openned for only a short period you do have to time you visit with the castle. but is well worth the visit.

1 hour including the tour should be plenty of time to visit.
