  • Beautiful views. The walk from the parking is nice (you can find a sheep and everything like us). The castle is in ruins but is spectacular. The landscape is very beautiful. You can get up to a Creek that have adorned with stones in the Buddhist style. Ideal place to enjoy the sights and nature.

  • Situated just a couple of miles from the town of Wick, and a short hop from Noss Head lighthouse, this is a gem of a wee ruin. A gentle walk down from the nearby car park takes in breathtaking views of Scotland's northeast coastline. The ruin is well maintained as an attraction with plenty of informative signage about the history and construction of the castle. Worth a visit.
  • Great place to visit but not easy to find
  • Enchanting. A beautiful spot, fabulous history and a castle ruin perched on a cliff. Well worth a visit.
