  • this is nicely hidden behind glenfiddich distillery, great castle to visit and its interesting as well, easily accessible, well worth a visit 
  • Enjoyed the vast history of this castle and the many rooms and areas. Views from the castle overlooking the area are beautiful. 
  • At the time of our visit, some rooms were unfortunately locked, but overall a beautiful testimony of history.

  • Visited here in summer, 2014. The castle is a ruins but worth the time to get a look. There are explanatory signs throughout so you can get an idea of what the various rooms were used for back in the days of Laird and Lady. There are steps to climb if you want to get to the second level. This is not a complaint, but reality: this is where we encountered the most midges during our one week trip in Scotland. Not terribly annoying and didn't deter our visit, but there are some insects out there in July
  • It's actually Hogwarts with a muggle repellent ward over it.
  • V interesting castle and brief review of its history. Well worth half hour stop.
