Scope and Content Stirling Town-house, Stirling Stirling Town-house replaced a medieval tolbooth on the same site. Funding came from the Malt Tax. 'Hyeland oak trees' were used for the spire, and 'Fyne French glass' was ordered for the windows. The roof required repeated repairs. The entrance stair leads straight up to the first floor. Beneath the stair is a black hole reached from the basement. In 1785 The town-house's front was extended to the left of the steeple in a style seamlessly matching the rest of the building. The building on the corner to the extreme right of the picture is the prison block containing the court-house and jail.. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
