  • It's a pity this castle is going to ruin....inside you can see where prisoners were kept in a dark hole, there are plaques on the walls you can read some are a bit high up. It doesn't take long to see...  more »

  • More a review of Loch Ranza, although the castle is worth a visit. Lots of visitor moorings for yachts and a small jetty. It can get windy, especially from the south and west. However, the mooring buoys are solid. A hotel/pub and a sandwich shop offer some food and drink. Some nice freshwater swimming in the nearby gorge. Well worth a visit by sea or land.
  • Beautiful setting. The castle itself is a ruin. But the bay is stunning on a good sunny day.
  • Scotland has a lot of castles in all shapes sizes etc. This one is perfect at a nice sunset with the river mouth, tiny harbour, hills on the mainland all around you. Its on a little spit of land in the middle of a valley of towering slopes and that aloan sets the scene but catch it at full moon, a misty morning or a nice sunset and its a magical place to relax
  • Great views across the misty loch. Good historical information and well maintained
  • Beautiful place. Free.
