Portencross Castle Reviews
Visited this castle twice as I enjoyed it so much. Situated on the Firth of Clyde with a lovely quiet setting. Beautiful views and a lovely little bay near at hand. We were lucky first visit as there ... more »
Came across this place purely by chance, it's free but a donation is hinted at, nice wee castle, in a lovely setting, ample parking, it also has plenty of seating to admire the views, or have a picnic... more »
Loved it the first time so had to go back. Steeped in history a place definitely to be visited by all . Strange that it isn't covered by the National Trust but is well looked after by a local charity ... more »
Excellent wee castle for a visit. Loads of information about the history of the castle and area. Lovely wee spots round south side of castle to sit and relax and watch the sunset. Well worth a visit.
The castle has been refitted to combine a medieval castle (1375) and a modern outlook. The view from the top of the castle is spectacular. It is manned by volunteers and only open during the Summer Season but absolutely worth a visit. The steps are treacherous so not ideal for the disabled. Volunteers are friendly and the information available is fascinating. You can also now find the Spanish Armada Cannon here (see my book "The Portencross Armada Conspiracy"). An absolute must visit.
Well worth a visit for the spectacular views across the Clyde estuary in any weather or season - a special place
Great place to visit with the family, nice walks around the castle and you can enter the keep and learn all about its history.
Excellent visit, my little grandson from Wales was well impressed. Staff were brilliant and informative. Thank you.
