  • We have placed here only a small photo stop, the castle was closed at the time. We have therefore a peek into the garden and I have to say - very nice. The system is great and maintained. Unfortunately, it was nieslig, so long as we don't have remained. But we have captured a few photos with great atmosphere.

  • A great place to take a look around. Beautiful gardens. Lots of history and good facilities.
  • Well worth a visit. NTS site. Fab castle and stunning garden and excellent eatery
  • A wonderful castle with estate gardens, owned by the same Burnett family for over 500 years. Now operated by Scotland. Original documents, paintings, needle-points abound. Complete freedom to photograph! Very beautiful, pay attention to the ceilings, & quality of wall hangings & furnishings. Then wander through the estates gardens! Absolutely fantastic. Such variety, such formality of layout. Even a Victorian era glass house. Custom built using Balmoral Castle's styling in its inspiration! Don't miss this one!
  • Great place for walks with some beautiful views and lots of wildlife (look out for herons near the river and pond). The castle has a very nice walled garden, you can get in for free after the castle closes for the day.
  • Interesting castle with lots for the whole family. Good formal gardens and excellent walks.
