    Modest ruins of Tower. The Museum set up in the House is pretty bare-bones. The usual price for Scotland, quite high. You can enjoy a beautiful view, but you don't have to go to the tower.

  • Nice walk from town - path through the trees take you up to the castle. Well worth the marginal fee to walk up to the castle and enjoy the grounds. Make sure that you walk around as there is a great little picnic place in a gazebo made from trees. Visited it on a day that they had a entertainment and truly enjoyed looking at the views with the sounds of the piper playing. If you enjoy castle ruins I recommend a visit if only to see the sites from the top of the castle.
  • Great afternoon out here. The castle itself is being renovated at the moment so we couldn't go to that but the house and grounds were lovely. Lots of exhibits and such beautiful gardens. There is even a wee cafe in the garden. Take the scenic walk up if you can (its a reasonably big hill) because there are plenty of things to see on the way up and great photo opportunities.
  • Nice cafe, lovely location with small museum.
  • Talked a lot and got a tour of the place by the next clan leader and he gave me a lot of information about the clan and what they used to own and what they do now, wonderful view over to kerrera and was there to see some bagpiping which was really interesting to.
  • Wonderful location and great work on retaining what remains of the castle. Had a great chat to the heir of the McDougal clan in the museum. Made the experience all the better. Nice displays with good history footnotes.
