Jail Wynd, Stirling, FK8 1DE

Jump to times or comments


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.
