  • Ok so I'm going to be a slight hater. I loved the grounds of this place- they looked magical. But when you go inside that kind of ends. While it is well-kept inside, compared to other places in Scotla...  more »

  • The best castle we visited and we visited many! It's great to see actual furniture and things from the castle. All of the other castles we visited were empty. The people at the castle are super knowledgeable and helpful. You can also visit the gardens which were beautiful. It wasn't super busy so you felt like you had space to walk around and take your time. There is also a cafe on site.
  • Probably the best garden I know. The castle's pretty special too. The cafe isn't too amazing - try the Milton Brasserie just down at Milton of Crathes for a better meal.
  • Great tour and the docents are very knowledgeable. Beautiful country. Learn about Robert the Bruce.
  • One of my favorite castles this trip to Scotland. Loved seeing so much of the actual castle being kept in restoration from hundreds of years ago. This castle was breath taking to see. Must stop by and take a look.
  • We visited many castles on our highlands visit and this is a first equal with Dunottar. A must see for the beautiful grounds that the castle is set amongst.
