  • Can get the elderly down to front and onto seats. Distance from car park to seats can be as short as 10 feet. 5 star when the Sun is shinning but no tea coffee or food. So remember the picnic.
  • A must see (with panoramic views of Arran on the top of the castle's terrace) great history! Easy to find and free parking. Volunteers staff were great, full of banter and chatty. Thanks guys.. lovely walk up towards Hunterston!
  • Amazing. There was a world of exploration behind a building that looks derelict and empty. Great information about the castle thorough videos, information board and fabulous volunteers!
  • Nice place to visit and beautiful views of Arran.
  • It's a place that has always had an air of mystery surrounding it.
