  • Very unique sandstone castle, built later than many others. Simply stunning gardens. This is well off the beaten track and nearly deserted the day we were there. Quite beautiful!  more »

  • Good bit of history. Peaceful while we were there. Nice garden and well kept surrounds. Worth a visit. Town has several good eateries. We enjoyed it.
  • Superb property, beautifully looked after by Historic Scotland. Atmospheric; gives a feel of how Lord Lindsey lived. Have a look, i think you'll love it
  • Considering when this castle was built, the owner was a very educated man, this is proven in the gardens, I won't spoil it! It's a beautiful building, a lovely sensory garden to sit in and the swallows do their dance around you. If you're lucky, you may even see Pete the Peacock!
  • The place is beautiful, it has easy access, the tickets are cheat and the lady at the desk was wonderful. It has one of the most beautiful gardens I've seen so far. Also got some lovely souvenirs my little nephew would surely love.
  • We really loved our visit and wished we had longer just to enjoy the surroundings. Bigger than expected. Garden is truly beutiful and so well kept. Really worth a visit.
