  • Lovely place to walk around either the ruins or the grounds. Take the children and the dog for a run around the grounds or use the swing parks by the loch. Just remember to treat yourself to a wee treat from one of the lovely eateries on the main street.
  • Very poor, beautiful surroundings but why you don't state clearly on your website different opening times during the winter season? Note for all the visitors from Oct last entry is at 3:15pm.. and it shuts at 4pm.
  • The volunteer guides from the local schools should be appraised for their efforts. The message fountain is a really complex masterpiece that need to be seen and experienced. Todays modern design is lacking in adventure and creative hidden codes
  • Very good place. Amazing garden and a real glimpse of original architecture. You can easily spend whole day on gardens and lake and they are free as well.
  • Amazing place, you have to go here. Don't forget to have a walk around the loch.
