This was a town house built in 1570 for the keeper of the castle

Stirling Castle – once a residence of Scottish kings and queens – was rebuilt in the 16th century


The Great Hall has been returned to its original yellow colour, which would have covered other castle buildings too. It would have been a golden sight on the top of the hill.

The Royal Palace

The inside of the Royal Palace has been refurbished to look as it might have done around 1540s.

This ceiling has replica Stirling Heads – the originals are in the museum

As it was a very grey and damp day, we coudn’t see the views
