  • Sorry to say but not much left of the castle. It is only accessible by foot from Rosslyn Chapel. The walk is about 1/4 mile with a couple of minor hills.....easy walk. Don't miss going down and around...  read more »
  • If you have been in the chapel and heard the history of the St. Clair family then you rather want to go and see the ruins just to complete the experience ( staff will give you directions ) - my friend...  read more »
  • The great unknown in Rosslyn is its castle. The remains out there, should be impressive. Strategically located, the moat is deep, the exceptional views, surrounded by a lush vegetation... It is very close to Rosslyn Chapel, to walk without problem. It is open and free. Here you have some pictures that do not do him justice. If you go to the Chapel, do not miss it

  • A bit like a really tasty cake after diet. Not much left! I was expecting more but it's still a beautiful area with great views and nice walkways. Worth it just first the walks but not much left unfortunately.
  • If you visit Rosslyn Chapel, it's worth the five minute walk down the hill to this ruined castle. There's not a great deal of it left, but the area is very scenic, and it's nice to get away from the Chapel crowds!
  • A very pretty part of the world and well worth a walk around, the bridge to the castle is the most impressive part left.
  • Not much of a castle, but great walks along river Esk, take your wellies as paths could be mudy.
  • amazing how much history this place has
