  • Good English heritage property that features well maintained grounds and ruins of the former Etal Castle. However is a little small and there is not too much to see. The entrance features a museum focused on the Battle of Flooden and the castles links to it. After browsing the museum visitors to the can browse the remains of the tower house and the gatehouse. The vast outdoor grass surrounding the tower house makes a great spot for a picnic and benches are also located around the site should you need them. The castle is just next-door to the Etal Station of the Heatherslaw Light Railway making it a ideal stop for anyone riding the train.
