  • Ardvreck Castle is an isolated ruin on a major West Coast rout in Scotland and is well worth a visit. The castle itself is more of a ruin then a full castle, however the area itself is quite beautiful...  more »

  • Parked the motorhome and took a walk round to see the castle. The display boards in the car park give you a history / insight of the castle. Enjoyed a nice stroll round and admired the view.
  • Beautiful location, but not much remains of the actual castle. Pleasant walk from the car park to the castle.
  • One of many nice old ruins that I passed by during my roadtrip, in England, Wales and Scotland back in 2001, that I took time to visit and enjoyed exploring. For me it was the highlight of the trip when travelling around the UK to see all these old castles and fortifications everywhere in diffrent designs and sizes. Many still in good condition and maintained, both small once and other massive.
  • Lovely scenic stop off whilst doing the NC500 in our camper. Don't pass by or you'll miss a little gem from a bygone era.
  • Nice ruins to visit and take great shots of. We also saw a dipper in the Loch nearby!
