    Once parked on the dedicated parking, take a side road, then another quite steep on the site! Nothing insurmountable. The ruin is still quite standing, we can climb to the top of the tower to see the landscape. Crescendo.

  • Quick walk through sheep laden fields to the castle, and what a wonderful hidden gem. A few treacherous staircases for the brave, a nice open and solid one for those just wanting a view. Truly worth a stop!
  • Good place to visit for a few hours and lovely walks.
  • Interesting castle in a beautiful spot, steep climb from the car park and not ideal for a wheelchair or pushchair. Take time to visit the Ormaig rock art, standing stones and cairn nearby!
  • Beautiful old ruins, can walk up the towers.
  • Great walk with the dog, parts of the castle were fenced off but otherwise enjoyable.
