  • When we visited the tower was shut for renovation but you could still climb the steps to get the view. Grounds were well manicured and the garden was beautiful with interesting sculptures on the walls...  more »
  • I read just now that deserved to be seen inside for its gardens, but I swear I saw him from outside won't even pass the thought of paying to see it. and we have done so.

  • The wonderful gardens coupled with the castle ruins, both in a tranquil setting, make this a must see. Every time I visit this region of Scotland, I make sure to stop by Edzell Castle.  more »

  • Not a complete castle, most of it having fallen to ruin and the stone behind reused locally for other buildings in the centuries gone by. By it does comprise a very large area and, with the added wooden steps and walkways, you are able to climb up to see different levels and viewpoints. There are also many descriptive signs to help give one some idea of what the place must have been like in it's probably glory. Well with the visit.
  • Beautiful garden. Quiet setting. Great Staff. Lovely for picnics
  • Really nice castle, nice location really peaceful and relaxing. Lovely garden to see and small visitors centre with shop and toilets. Warden very friendly and knowledgeable
  • Beautiful place and Hillary is lovely.
  • Great visit! The castle was really nice and people there were very helpful.
