Highlights of the lodging include; the Renaissance façade and main entrance which prepare the visitor for the 17th -century splendours within. These include the High Dining Room with its impressive and precious painted decoration, the Drawing Room with its grand fireplace, recreated tapestries and elaborate chair of state and My Lady’s Closet, where Lady Anna, Argyll’s second wife, would have spent much time.
Argyll’s Lodging is open to Stirling Castle visitors each day between 1pm and 4pm with ad hoc guided tours of the property that give an insight into this stunning 17th Century House and its former residents.
