  • I think the signs to this castle should be either taken down or at least people should be informed that it is no longer open to the public. Even the pages on the internet don't inform you.  more »
  • Our private tour operator tried emailing them to get us a look see inside the castle but no response. Too bad. Gate keeper cottage resident said that the castle had been closed for over a year tho.....  more »
  • We were looking forward to our visit to Balgonie Castle, but upon arrival, we found out that it was closed. Beautiful from the outside, though, with a Texas flag flying along with the Scottish flag.....  more »
  • Nice look at historic buildings but as its someones home its private and no longer available to the public.. which is a shame as it sits in nice grounds just under used
  • Awful place run by Brexiteer haters of Scotland. Don't go there unless you too are a gammon.
  • Lovely place, lovely people. Not very often you get a personal tour from the Laird himself. Great to see the work that is being done here, much better than just leaving it fade away with the elements.
  • Great Place...very historic and the Laird and family are lovely people.
  • Lovely tour of the castle by a very charming and informative host. Well worth the visit and looking forward to seeing it on the Outlander series.
