    The impressive and well preserved ruins of the Balvenie Castle is located just outside the town Dufftown on a small hill and is good to reach on foot with a short hike or vehicle. Front of it, there are also parks and picnic areas. The tickets can be bought in a small container building right next to it, there is a small selection of the usual souvenirs and drinks, and a toilet. The grounds are very well maintained. The history of the ruins is represented on and building good and concise and explanatory marked the individual construction phases and various premises with their functions. The surviving multi-storey areas can also climb and get an impression of the imposing dimensions inside of the premises. A visit of the castles can integrate well in a walk around Dufftown.
