  • A beautiful castle in an idyllic location. Well set up with an enjoyable audio guide. The history was well presented and you get a very good insight into Highland life. Certainly well worth a visit.
  • The castle has a stunning backdrop. Excellent guided tours. It's a community project and very inviting with the ability to touch many of the exhibits.
  • Much more intimate look at the history. Smaller and less touristy. So glad we stopped by. Had a great audio tour that gave a lot of good history on the location.
  • Great history of the family but I'd like to know who actually built it
  • Not really the prettiest castle from the outside. However, they restored 12 rooms which are really great.
