  • My wife is descended from the Sinclairs, so we visited during our two weeks in Scotland. Also the Orkneys, another Sinclair hot spot. The beach was beautiful with lots of colored rocks to pick up.

  • Easy to interpret this site, impressive position on small promontory; narrow, steep path to beach full of interesting pebbles and rock formations. Shame currently no access to tower interiors. Worth an hour's investigation.
  • Loved it. Had a great walk round the ruins if the castle and along the coastal path.. GO Explore here amazing.. I can't wait to go back
  • Boy oh boy this place is perfick..... If you love walking beaches castles (the odd trolley) absolutely lovely... Can't wait to go back.... If you see the pic I put up please leave a comment and let me know what you think the age is..... 🤔😁
  • A rainy day but still a lovely pieceful place on the edge of the town with stunning views across the Firth of Forth. Go and explore!
  • A piece of history! I always wonder how it was in his time! How was the life back then!
