  • The Castle and its gardens are fabulous. It is worthwhile to take the guided tour, it was great. The guide very good and fun. Before we went to coffee & you at The Corner Shop Tea Room, it is worth to go. It is very economical and genuine, as being in the living room of a private house. Open business to preserve the town post office.

  • Wonderful place in spectacular setting. Tour of castle very interesting with something to interest all ages. This was the favourite residence of the Queen Mother and contains lots of family memorabilia.
  • No link with Macbeth but it is a live castle linked to the Royal family. Good gardens. Informed tour guide and a kids park as well.
  • Great place to visit highly recommended. Castle and grounds were brilliant.
  • The history of Scotland before your eyes, great tour guide. I loved the fact it's still lived in. Don't miss this site.
  • Picture perfect. Home of the latest Queen Mother. Excellent guided tour. Castle lovingly and carefully looked after. Not overrun by too many tourists at once. Imposingly long arrival drive to the front of the castle with picture fairytale appearance. Many interesting walks through the grounds.
