  • Having lived within 10 miles for ten years we made our first visit this week. Exceeded our expectations. Gave a real insight into life in the long ago days. Well with a visit.  more »
  • Impressive castle, State for its time. Each room had toilet and fireplace, that means bathrooms and heating! Today there isn't that hardly in great houses. Inside the chimney system is perfectly, how each is slightly tilted com on the bottom for not sharing the shot, the same with latrines. Impressive and in addition, there are almost no people can be quiet way and get the idea that you're there. Of course, it must be imagination, is all thrown.

  • We visisted Elcho Castle last Saturday morning and were given a warm welcome by Lesley who was on duty. The castle itself, though in ruins, stands on a very pretty spot overlooking the "silvery Tay" (...  more »

  • Love this castle and it's grounds so much. My little boy said "it's the best castle you can be brave in". It really fuelled his imagination. Beautifully kept and the staff are wonderful. Friendly and knowledgeable. The orchard as lush with fruit which we were encouraged to try. Now opening through October, we will return whenever we are in Perth. Perfect.
  • Interesting place worth a visit and not expensive. Friendly and informative lady at the entrance. Visiting in the summertime I would take a picnic to eat in the grounds, as this visit was in October settled for picking some apples from the orchard.
  • Go just go it's brilliant, it's one of the best castles I have visited and has loads to see and do. It's not your usual ruin.
  • Our favorite castle! We stopped here randomly while travelling north and were so glad we did! We were mesmerized by the size andoriginal plaster work and could feel the years of lives that had occupied the castle.
  • Spent ages exploring all the staircases and attic rooms. Views from the roof are wonderful.
