  • Camped nearby good flat area. Great views plus not too far from parking. The deer here are not timid and came very close to camp. Be prepared for midges if you are staying the night.
  • Amazing to watch the sunset here. Great area for wild camping too. Clean up after yourself!
  • It's very impressive! The view on Loch Assynt is stunning. There's a car park nearby. You can reach the castle by foot and you can walk around it as well.
  • Spectacular scenery and a great tumble down castle. Doesn't take more than half an hour so this is a stop off rather than a destination but cracking none the less.
  • Such an amazing attraction surrounded by outstanding scenery. Amazing to learn about the local history.
