  • Great visit! The castle was really nice and people there were very helpful.
  • 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.
  • Great place to relax and enjoy
  • Lovely castle friendly staff
