Haunted Houses Old Town JailOld Town Jail

Stirling’s New County Jail, built to replace the wretched Tolbooth, across the street, was opened in 1847. Various Psychics and Mediums visiting the Jail reported odd experiences, here – though, surprisingly, it has NO ghost stories connected to it.

The first 5-Star visitor attraction in Stirling, it closed in 2012 - but the collaboration of the Stirling GhostWalk's David Kinnaird and Geoff Morrison of Destination Stirling/Scottish City Pass (and the assistance of many local organisations - including Creative Stirling, the Smith Art Gallery and Museum, Historic Scotland and Stirling Electrical) has ensured that regular performance tours have recommenced each Easter and summer-season since 2015. The Jail closed for the summer-season on 9th September 2018 - but will reopen for special shows at Hallowe'en/Mid-Term Break, in October!

The building is currently home to the VisitScotland Visitor Information Centre, Destination Stirling and Creative Stirling.
