  • Stunning scenery and great walking, parking for around 20 cars but it is easily a 10 minute walk to the castle taking in steep up and downhills. Great afternoon out. Realistically this is not wheelchair accessible.
  • A steep walk through the glen to the castle, but this was a castle worth the visit. Spectacular views from the top. Many castle features to be observed that are no longer visible in other castles. There is a lovely garden below and it is a pleasant place to spend a relaxing time before facing the walk back to the carpark.
  • didn't actually go into the castle but the surrounding walks were phenomenal. Well preserved and stunning few hours lost in nature. Some of the prettiest waterfalls were here. Would recommend bringing supplies such as some snacks and water as it is a walk that lasts easily 2 hours. Excited to come back to show the fam!
  • Beautiful castle hidden in a mysterious forest complex. Nice and helpful staff. Beautiful view from the top of the castle tower.
  • I loved the historical feeling in this place, as you might guess from my name. A great old castle non the less, with impressive views.
