    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 »

  • The greatest castle I've seen in Scotland, so luminous, welcoming and well curated. The views are magnificent, I wish I'd come back in September to see the orchard in it's full potential.
  • Very interesting building with a great history. The site on the banks of the Tay is wonderfully peaceful and a superb spot for a picnic on one of the benches there.
  • Elcho castle is one of Scotland's hidden gems. Well worth the visit if you are nearby :-)
  • 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.
  • Excellent little castle tucked away, but great fun for the kids and well preserved
