  • Stunning ruins on island; requiring a short boat journey. Very romantic ruined keep. Otters in river. Stunningly beautiful

  • Great little castle. Lovely lawns outside the castle and who doesn't like a boat trip to get there?
  • Love the ferry ride. Beautiful views. Nice staff!
  • My most favourite castle in the world. I've been visiting it for 25 years. How many castles are on an island that you have to reach by going in a little motor boat (it used to be a rowing boat) after having rung a bell to call the boat over AND were built by a man called Archibald the Grim? Sometimes we find owl pellets around the base of the castle. Ospreys nest successfully nearby too, so take binoculars. We always take a picnic and chill out on the grass before taking a look around.
  • Not a huge amount to see but the small boat ride makes it all worth it. Knowledge of the guides is brilliant.
  • A beautiful walk to the castle and definately a wee gem at the end so picturesque definately worth a visit
