  • Although the castle is closed until April, it’s worth driving up to see it (around the corner from Glenfiddich distillery) and the neighbouring highland cattle!  more »
  • The castle is closed till spring so we walked around and saw the castle from the outside and took some picture and it was nice.  more »
  • Intriguing to wander through the castle ruins after a tour of the Glenfiddich distillery. It's just a very short walk up a scenic country road. There is a separate admission fee, but you can wander...  more »

  • Great ruins, plenty left to help you picture what it originally looked like. Has small plaques that tell you what different areas were. Self-guided. Remnants of a moat around it.
  • Incredibly interesting. I did not expect this castle to be that big. Initially we thought this one will be no different than other castles in the area but it's defenitely one of the most worth visiting. Toilets available.
  • Great castle. There is a person who can give more info about the castle and a bathroom. Very interesting tour
  • Lovely place in the heart of Whiskey country! It's reasonably small so you won't spend a lot of time there. Admission is paid at the small gift shop out front and there are a few parking spots beside the shop.
  • I was surprised at how many levels of the castle have been preserved at these ruins and the nearly complete rooms. Great visit and very fun to explore!
