  • Best castle ruins I've seen in the whole of Scotland. Can easily get lost in all the rooms. Hard to keep track of what you have and haven't explored yet.
  • Absolutely incredible. The views around are fantastic and the palace itself is an amazing visit. I would definitely recommend as a trip and there are many cafes in the town for lunch and snack. Overall a great stop for the day especially for families
  • Beautiful palace. Great history. Worth a visit and walk around as a good day out.
  • Historical building in good condition with lots of information and nice vantage points to view over the loch and the whole palace from above
  • I enjoy the history that it represents. Most of all, just chilling on the grass beside the building enjoying the place.
