Bruce of Auchenbowie's House

An A-listed property situated at the top of St. John Street, next to the Church of the Holy Rude, in Stirling's Old Town, Bruce of Auchenbowie's House has been much-altered since it was built c.1520. This three-storey end terrace tenement is of rubble construction and features a Dutch-style crow-stepped gable and a vaulted basement. There was an entrance at street level for the lower floor, while the upper floors were accessed by a separate entrance via an off-centre stair tower which projects from the front of the building. Altered 18th and early 19th centuries, this was the town house of Robert Bruce of Auchenbowie, a Baillie of Stirling, who served as Provost 1555-56, and whose estate lay to the south of the town.
