Fine mansion

Beautifully kept. Can imagine how grandeur this mansion was at one time. Very close to Stirling Castle and can get free entry as part of the castle tour.

Entrance fee is included in that for Stirling Castle. Make sure you take one of the guided tours or you will miss so much background information about the house.

Only found out about this place by chance from staff at the castle. Castle ticket gets free entry to here which is great value for sure. Truly worth a visit. You step back in time with very good and well restored and beautifully presented rooms of the period. Staff were truly helpful and friendly. Well done everyone.

Didnt go in because it was closed the day I went but it is a beatiful place and right on the way up to the castle. Can miss it because the sign is very small.

Visited as part of the ticket deal for Stirling Castle. Really enjoyed looking around this really interesting house. Love the cushioned loo upstairs, might think about that at home

It is great to understand some of the ancient history of this place especially with the help of the very knowledgeable guides. Doesn't take long and is included in the price of visiting Stirling Castle
