    Thoroughly enjoyed my visit and exploring the castle on my own. Lots of history. But is not suitable for those with walking difficulties due to the old stairs throughout. Well worth the £5 it cost. Ho...  more »

  • Stayed in the guesthouse using Airbnb. It was a lovely experience with picturesque surroundings. We were also able to request a tour of the castle proper from our host which was quite interesting.
  • I was part of an organised group who had a tour of the Castle at the weekend. The history of this castle is amazing and the guides were so knowledgeable. A fascinating place that is definitely worth the visit.
  • It is a castle to look from the outside, inside is a private house, but all the surrounding landscape along the Tweed River is completely worth it
  • Nice castle to look at. Shame it is closed to the public. Surroundings on the banks of the tweed are gorgeous.
  • Not only is the historic castle marvelous, but the surroundings is a site of beauty.
