Darrow Lodging


(Darrow Ludging, Glengarry Lodge)

The Darrow Lodging (or Ludging), sometimes referred to as the Glengarry Lodge, is situated at No. 56 Spittal Street in the Old Town of Stirling, adjacent to Robert Spittal's Hospital. This was the town house of lawyer Sir James Darrow in 1521 but altered in the 17th C. at which time it seems to have served for a time as an Episcopal chapel. This A-listed building comprises three storeys with swept dormers, crow-stepped gables and a circular stair-tower, which projects from the front, The principal room on the first floor features rich plasterwork and unique internal side-sliding window shutters. It was restored in 1959 by Robert Naismith (1916 - 2004), partner to the late Sir Frank Mears (1880 - 1953), who had done much to refurbish the Old Town of Stirling.
