  • Beautiful castle in a gorgeous setting! Very tranquil and relaxed. There are several good hostels in the area so your pocket can also relax! 😉
  • This is a romantic old castle in a beautiful location. Unfortunately it was closed when we were there.
  • The reviews sounded excellent so we thought that this was going to be much more spectacular than it was.
  • 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.
