  • Mind you: those traveling to Scotland by car (why not afraid, like me, to drive on the left), castles can enjoy in many dozens and, if he chooses the right routes, doesn't take much to poke 3 or 4 in one day, if he wants. Entrance fees (high) aside, for fans of the genre is a godsend. But if you travel by public transport, is another matter altogether, and the idea of being an hour and 39 minutes by bus from Dundee to just as long to get back to the starting point not exalted my partner. My fixation for the castles reached, however, has had the upper hand and did not at all regret. The castle is small, but not only packs a unique specimen-for Scotland-about Renaissance garden with beautiful geometric figures, well maintained; It also has its own particular charm, due to the specific nature that sets it apart from many other similar buildings, immediately seized-as I see from other reviews-by the visitor. I mean, you could tell without excess affectation that is a small gem. As they say, is worth the effort to get there.

  • 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
  • Great visit! The castle was really nice and people there were very helpful.
  • Splendid Historic Scotland site tae visit in this area and a walk down the street in Edzell is recommended frae all the different shops.
  • Excellent and underrated Gem from Historic Scotland - Opens in Summer Only, and WELL worth a visit. Has a couple of picnic tables and a great bit lawn to the outside if you've got kids who need to have a run about.
  • Beautiful gardens.
