  • Great small castle with nice history dating back to 1457. The last owning family Forbes owed it the best known history. The Forbes lived there nearly 400 years. In 1963 it went to the National Trust for Scotland.
  • Captivating location with a rich history and perhaps a ghost or two. Castle tour is excellent and tour guide Paul is top-notch. Worth the drive from Alford. Unfortunately photographs of the castle interior are not permitted.
  • Beautiful Castle, there is a couple of walks from what I could find, less to do here than some of the other castles in the area.
  • Nice walks and views. Castle tours available.
  • Nice place to visit even on days that the castle itself is closed. It looks unique and has nice surrounding views. I believe there is a meter at the parking area, but the walking grounds are free otherwise.
