  • The castle is a ruin but it is a great historical landmark. The grounds are immaculate and the Interiors although sparse and bare give an authentic view to a time past. The interpreter maning the shop was very helpful and had a great deal of information and historical context to bring the castles history to life.
  • I found the castle really interesting and well worth the entrance fee. There are information boards dotted around, and there is a video to watch upstairs about its history.
  • Great welcome from the man at the ticket booth and interesting video and information boards. Enjoyed climbing to the top of the walls to great views.
  • I've been here a few times. Close to the ferry and the shops and especially good if you're already a member of Historic Scotland.
  • If you like history its a very interesting place, the views from the top are amazing. Staff are friendly and helpful
