  • It is one of the most beautiful and spectacular castles of Scotland, romantic ruins on the shores of a loch, but on the way there are directions on how to get there and I can't imagine why. As soon as you notice a small parking lot with cars, stop. There is a path ahead that branches into a small plain (attention, when it rains it's all a quagmire). Free admission. Definitely worth a stop.

  • We read that Kilchurn castle, home of the Campbells of Glenorchy, is very beautiful and well worth a visit and so we set off on a 1.5-hour trip to see it. Once there, however, we found the small carpa...  more »

  • Very enjoyable experience to explore at own pace. Difficult parking, not suitable for individuals with mobility issues. Great views, highly recommend stopping by for an hour or less. Great photo opportunity.
  • Not the easiest place to find from the road, we drove past the turning the first time. Nice walk down to the castle and very impressive setting. A lovely find. We were lucky enough to spot an osprey on the walk back too.
  • Fantastic visit. Not one of the most famous castles in Scotland, but the views are great and the small hike to the castle is awesome. Highly recommended
  • We were expecting some more conserved site with reception etc but it looks like abandoned and desolated. There are barely cartels inside describing the history. There are NO signposts so follow the navigator directions. If it's been raining it's all muddy all around so wear good outdoor shoes! Worth a visit if you have spare time and you are in the area.
  • This site is closed, so although you can walk out to the castle and walk around, you cannot access the inside. I presume Historic Scotland plan to do some conservation work. Very pretty though!
