Argyll's Lodging (4 of 4)

During the Napoleonic wars the British Army was greatly expanded, from 40,000 to 225,000 men, and the small hospital in the castle proved inadequate. Argyll's Lodging was purchased by the arm for use as a military hospital. The house remained in use as a military hospital until 1964 when it was turned into a youth hostel. In 1996 Historic Scotland opened it as a museum and have refurnished the rooms using the inventory prepared by the 9th Earl. Today, it is open to the paying public.
