  • Interesting architecture. The castle is located on a hill surrounded by plains full of sheeps. Scotland :)  more »
  • Due to the current restrictions, we could only stop off and walk around the castle and it's grounds but it's an interesting little castle but not necessarily the most stunning. Well worth a stop off.....  more »
  • The inside was not open when we visited (19 September) but it was a sunny dsy and we enjoyed walking in the castle grounds and viewing from the outside. Well worth a visit, a short walk from the free....  more »
  • This is a lovely wee castle, very interesting and a bit different. We listened to all the extra audio guide material as well, I recommend if you're not pressed for time. The staff were really nice.
  • It has a lot of rooms open and they are well furnished with an informative audio guide. It could use a proper tea room but that would be my only recommendation
  • The volunteer group that supports the castle was having a special event with someone period dressed in every room who gave a short history lesson of the castle. Very interesting. Not handicapped accessible but well worth the walk up the steep hill & the narrow circular stone steps if you are able.
  • Very nice staff, great castle decorated in mostly 1950's furniture. One of my favourite castles in Scotland. If you go, make sure to go for the audio tour! It had some great stories!
  • Fantastic place to visit and see where the history took it turn. Staff greats you with big smile. They are more than helpful. Audio guide available in couple languages so everyone will get the best of their experience.
