  • Kisimul Castle- almost last point of our recent trip to Hebrides. Not huge and still under restoration but well worth visiting. Only way to get in is by boat which is included in price. It takes few m...  more »

  • The inside is NOTHING like you'd expect! So don't look at the pictures until you've been! I thought it was really interesting and absolutely unique, although definitely bijou! The ferry boat trip takes you right round the far side too. When it's fully restored it will be a total delight.
  • We went to check the ferry times to Oban, on Sunday 2nd October 2017, on our way back saw a sign saying Castle and ferry today was free. The Castle was being restored and information limited, but speak to the lady in the shop and you will learn all you want to know. Nice little boat ride to and from, unique little Castle and well worth a visit.
  • Great little tourist attraction. Tickets either upon arrival or from tourist information 50m up the road
  • Exciting to go across in the boat, but for £6 there is very little to see and no information provided about anything. You can buy a leaflet for £1 in the shop which tells you less than Wikipedia. It has fantastic potential, but sadly doesn't yet meet it.
  • good place, but only can see the half castle more rooms was closed for works, maybe they only need get the half price!
