  • Amazing sunny day which probably helped but an amazing place all the same with fantastic views out to Bass Rock. Very friendly chap in the ticket office / shop who was very welcoming. Well worth a vis...  more »
  • I visited with my wife and 3 grandchildren aged 8, 4 and 2. Some of the stairs and viewpoints were a bit hairy for the little one, so needed some care. However lots of open grass areas for them to run...  more »
  • Not only is a visit to the castle a fascinating journey through history, it's location, high on the cliffs looking towards Bass Rock is worth the entrance fee alone.  more »

  • Really impressive ruin with amazing views of the whole surrounding area with high points at the top of the battlements and plenty of dark ground level areas to hide in. It also has some benches and resting places in the courtyard for a picnic and a rest. There is potential for it to be very cold, but the high walls provide some great cover, it the weather looks cold, wear a warm jacket! There's disabled access to the lower areas but if the ground is not dry, it may be difficult to get up and down the lawn.
  • Some phenomenal views over the bass rock. Great place to explore too... Kids of all ages will love it
  • Great place to visit, amazing views of cliffs, sea and the Bass rock. Spent there couple of hours and had a plenty of fun with kids, claiming stairs, watching birds from the top, some scary dark places... enjoyed our visit...
  • Enjoyed exploring this castle, just a shame Oliver Cromwell got here first and trashed the place. A nice place to chill out and to let your imagination run wild.
  • Lovely little castle remains. Great view from the top. Bit of a trek on foot (took us 45 mins from North Berwick), but was worth the effort.
