  • Great staff, reasonable price (£6 per adult) and a pleasingly intact old structure. Some great views from the ramparts too. It would be great if there was some reconstruction, as it is it's pretty bare but good for a clamber around a historical castle.
  • Love exploring this castle. Not only is it rich in history but boasts some great views of the Forth and Fife. Also quite popular amongst Outlander fans as the setting of Fort William
  • Beautiful area very peaceful. Stunning views. Historically important castle too.
  • I thought it was a great little castle and so worth the money to get in. Worth a visit over Edinburgh castle. Much better value and accessibility is good
  • My children love it here. Plenty to explore and a good place to relax too.
