  • Once again a success of "Historic Scotland" with in very low entry price. The evidence that this is not the greed that drives this company. Explanations are available at several locations. The set is immaculate and well maintained and restored with intelligence. Hard to believe that it dates back to the 1st half of the 16th century. The setting is perfect, in the countryside at the edge of the river. Inside is true to the story, another good point.

  • 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.
