Tolbooth

Nestled in the heart of Stirling's Old Town, Tolbooth has been dubbed as one of the best live music venues in the country.

Having been rejuvenated in 2002 with a redesign by Richard Murphy, the new appeal has reinstated Tolbooth as an important feature of Stirling's culture.

With an unique history (this venue has been a court house, jail and also held Parliament for James VI), Tolbooth now strives to give the town some of the best musicians and performers working in Scotland.
