  • Visited with our dog just to take pictures from outside. But to our delight we was allowed into the grounds with our dog. Stunning views from the castle, staff friendly. If you're not good with walkin...  more »
  • The round trip takes you up by the river with many interesting view points. The castle itself has many rooms you can visit and the garden is lovely. The walk back down was also very pleasant.  more »
  • We were staying nearby for a few days and this was perfect for spending a few hours walking around the castle. Good information and atmosphere inside and out in the gardens.  more »

  • Vertigo-inducing spiral staircase in the tower! Stunning view from the top though. Great woodland walks around the castle and hill walking behind. Great day out. Kiosk at the entrance sells bottled drinks, snacks, books, etc. and tea bags (with hot water available in a small room tucked away in the corner. WC here too.) Cafes are in Dollar, or bring a packed lunch if the weather is fine. Not a great place for disabled or anyone not steady on their feet! But kids will enjoy the tower. There are two car parks on the road up to the castle; the first one is good because you can approach the castle via the woodland walk.
  • A great castle with fantastic views. There are a couple of car parks, the one at the very top is small, the lower car park is larger and guides you towards the woodland walk up to the castle. You may be able to drop off disabled people in the staff car park right at the gatehouse (short, steep walk up to the castle) and then drive back down to the car parks. The roads up to both car parks and castle are steep and it isn't the best for wheelchair or pushchair access (unless you have someone to push) and apart from the court and lower grounds you won't see much of the inner castle either as there are many levels and steps. There is also a small ford (inches deep) across the road on the walk to the castle, with a narrow walk bridge, most pushchairs won't get across it and wheelchairs definitely won't (hence dropping off mentioned above). There's a cafe, shop and toilet (though not really a disabled access toilet).
  • The best views are available from the top of the main building. A bit of a trek to get up here but well worth it for the castle and scenery. On a good day you can see for miles
  • Loved it. Great place to explore. Full of history. Well worth it.
  • Cool place and scenery, bit of a walk though. Going back to car a bit of a bugger, uphill all the way.
