Our self-guided tours run daily at 30 minute intervals between 10.15am and 6pm (May-Nov). Our audio handsets allows inmates to safely explore the cells on the ground floor before heading to the Exercise Yard which is of course located – yes, you guessed it – on the roof! From here you will continue to our observation tower for breath-taking views of the Old Town, Ochils, Trossachs… on a clear day you can see as far as Edinburgh’s Forth Road Bridges!
The whole tour lasts between 45 and 90 minutes – but there’s no time-limit to your experience. Tracks are tiered for each location, so you can listen to as much – or as little – as you wish, pacing the tour to suit yourself. Our helpful guides are always on hand to offer insight into all that Stirling has to offer.
