  • Stunning location for a spot of wild camping its just a shame that there are certain individuals who dont know how to take there litter home with them.
  • Always like it here, round house cafe much improved with new building. Shame about alcoholics camping on Loch shore by the Castle... I hope they take their rubbish away with them, they were friendly alcoholics mind.
  • Been here a few times fishing,great for kids with the castle and at night if it's clear skies,look up towards the heavens and I swear you can see every star 😀😀
