  • Had a thoroughly enjoyable visit to Auchindoun with our kids. The ruins are great for them to run around in and the views around about are a sight to behold themselves. Wee walk up from the car park.....  more »
  • Great castle perched on a mound, ruined but in a cool way with fantastic views as you walk up to it. Can park quite close in a small car park after driving up a very stony road. Well worth a visit!  more »
  • This 1470 (circa) castle overlooks the surrounding landscapes of Dufftown and Craigellachie. A bit of history found from the two information boards / plaques - it was possibly built by master mason.....  more »
  • Just so pleasantly remote. After you walk up the track, you pass through several gates, and then you can just walk all around the site. It was very calming to just be alone with this piece of (sad, violent) history.
  • Good place to spend an hour or so. Its free, has a small car park - if you are brave enough to drive up the track - and very atmospheric with lovely views
  • Nice walk in the rain with our granddaughter to the castle. Even nicer between the showers!
  • Great castle once you get yo it. Stunning views
  • Absolutely breathtaking vista. Honestly more of a reason to visit than the castle itself. Worth the rough drive and hike up.
