    - Chapel Royal: the last royal building in the castle. It has been part of many historical events. The frescoes inside are on of the best in Scotland.
    - Great Kitchens: it is on the Outer Close and was a very busy scene for the castle staff. It is where food was prepared and cooked, ale was brewed, wine was stored and bread was baked.
    - Stirling Heads Gallery: learn how about the wooden roundels carved for James V to show off the Stuart Lineage.
    - Stirling Tapestries: on display in the Royal Palace. The workshops are based at the back of the castle.
