  • This Castle is a worthwhile visit. So much history in this building and it has a much deserved place in Scotlands historic past. A great location, a place to relax and absorb the atmosphere. 
  • Beautiful scenery, lovely gentle walk with wide angle views of a larger than normal Scottish tower house type castle and a wee boat trip! The staff are wonderful, very helpful and as it was quiet the ...  read more »
  • A nice castle in a stunning location and full of history. The castle is on an island and requires a trip across the water by boat which just adds to the experience 
  • A beautiful walk to the castle and definately a wee gem at the end so picturesque definately worth a visit
  • Brilliant place to explore. Magical location, atmospheric, and set in beautiful countryside. Go watch the Ospreys in August. The little ferry just adds an extra bit of fairy dust.
  • We visited this wonderful place yesterday and yes, it is about .75 of a mile each way but there are plenty of benches where you can sit and catch your breath/straighten your back/relieve your bad knees (I have all of those things...!) and look at a lovely view whilst doing so. When you get to the jetty, you can either ring the bell for the lovely attendant to come and take you across in the little motor-launch or go a little further and watch the Ospreys. We did both and I wouldn't have missed it! I have some fab photos of the castle and views - not so many of the Ospreys - they were a bit too distant for my telephoto lens, although the 'bins' found them easily. We spotted red and roe deer too. Great food at nearby Castle Douglas too!
  • Great ancesters were there.
  • Brill place to see ospray and red kites and other wild life
