  • Excellent little castle tucked away, but great fun for the kids and well preserved
  • It is a great place to visit, with ample space for the kids to run about and a beautiful and well-preserved building in which you can get lost! Do not forget to visit the roof for great views of the River Tay.
  • Elcho castle is one of Scotland's hidden gems. Well worth the visit if you are nearby :-)
  • Awesome castle to visit. Great country drive to and from castle.
  • He is currently in the works. The castle itself has nothing special, in Scotland you can visit many similar castles in ruins. Most liked the landscape on Perth and the Tay River seen from the small road that is accessed.
