  • Not sure why this gets such high ratings. A bit of a climb to get there and the not a lot more. Takes longer to walk from the car park. Nice drive to get there. Some beautiful countryside.  more »
  • Not what you imagine in terms of a castle it is more a house that was used by the red coats at some points, however in saying that it is well worth going to see, they have fitted it out really well...  more »
  • Before arriving to Corgarff Castle, there are some interesting Standing Stones on the slopes above it.Check them out in your way to the castle.  more »

  • Not worth it. 6 pound for looking at a few almost empty rooms. But the landscape is beautiful. Just go there and take a look from the meadow
  • The Castle stops selling Tickets at 17:00 and closes at 17:30, which is not an issue. The issue is that we were at the castle door, in the pouring rain today 5 minutes before 17:00 and everything was locked up. There were still people working at the castle I think, since there were cars parked next to it, they apparently don't care. I was and am furious, if you close early, put it at the gate of the parking place. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
  • Top floor a must see!! Note: no toliets available.
  • Self guided, not much to see. But a nice hike to get there.
  • Am amazing remote windswept setting, mostly themed around its military history. Impressively unsqueeky floorboards and some lovely stonework. Good for viewing birdlife around.
