The Castle today
|Stirling Castle is managed by Historic Scotland and is open to the public.It is an educational visit, an historic adventure, a stirring experience in Scottish nationalism, and a fun family day out all in one. Look out for the specially dressed characters who are fun and informative!|
|The Castle itself consists of a complex of different buildings and fortifications. You can find out more information about individual buildings and different parts of the Castle in The Physical Castle.At the time of writing, the following prices applied:
Adult – £13.00
Child – £6.50
Child under 5 – Free
Over 60s / unemployed – £10.00
The prices might sound quite high, but we think they are much better value for money than the comparable prices at the likes of Edinburgh Castle. You can really spend much of the day in Stirling Castle, whether it’s walking around the fortifications, finding out about the Stirling Heads in the exhibition area, down at the tapestry studio, in the gift shop, or having a tea or coffee in the castle cafe. Historic Scotland members enter for free.
Stirling Castle is open most days of the year, seven days a week.
