  • Hidden gem near Perth. The castle can be accessed for a fee or with the historic explorer pass and absolutely worth the money. It stands on a flat land surrounded by countryside and is very well preserved. There are three floors, plus the walkway outside where you can admire the panorama; the rooms are all of stone, with multiple entrances and you run the risk of "getting lost" without using a definite policy of visit. The added value is that being a little hidden, perhaps is not mobbed than other most famous castles and allows you to immerse yourself in an atmosphere somewhere between the magical and the historian.

  • 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.
