Opening Hours & Tour Times

Our tours run every 30 mins from 10.15am with our final tour at 5.15pm . The first part of the experience is an interactive performance tour which is recommended for all ages. You will then have the opportunity to visit our roof top observation tower for the best views in Stirling and explore the rest of the cells in your own time.

I would thoroughly recommend the tour of the old jail - this lasts approx 1hr including a trip to the top of the jail for some good photo opportunities of Stirling. The tour is handled by one guide/actor who plays several parts during the tour - one being the old jail governor, another being an inmate and also the last hangman.
