  • This is an impressive castle ruins with the most amazingly huge walls. Really interesting to see canon balls that had been fired at the castle. Parts of the ruins are currently being renovated but still well worth a visit. The attendant/guide Chris was amazingly helpful and informative.
  • Very interesting castle that was different from anything we saw while in Scotland because of the color of the materials used. A couple of the areas were closed while renovations are being done. That actually allowed you to see how they are performed. The gentleman at the shop was nice enough to give us a quick history of castle. Do walk around the trail which runs by the river! You can walk between the river and castle for some extra views of it.
  • A fantastic Castle to visit if your looking for a day out. If your like castle's, history, architecture or a just taking the kids out for a walk then you'll love bothwell castle. Don't forget to enjoy the forest trail by the river Clyde while your here.
  • A nice place to have a short visit. Interesting with the donjon which is quite unusual. A good telling of the different stages of the life of the castle.
  • Great castle, plus lovely walk down by the Clyde. We seen and met plenty of wild and wonderful things. Pity about the scaffolding.
