There are benches/tables placed by some of the windows; a nice place to just sit for a while. Directly behind the castle is a playground and beside it is a... More

From the castle, you can see the sea and with good weather in June it is possible to see the dolphins from the tower. Don't forget your binoculars. Behind the castle, there is a kids playground.

Went to see this castle based on the reviews was a bit disappointed as thought it would have had dungeons or something linked to a castle but it was a museum inside a castle. The museum was ok the stairs were very steep. Views from the rooms in the museum were good nice views. Not a place for small kids... More

Great place if your passing but wouldn't plan your day around it, not a huge display but worth seeing can be done in under an hour

You can gain entrance to this castle for free, climb up over the gun mounts, ramparts etc at your leisure, there is a museum in the building, and even a viewing room at the very top of the tower over looking the Tay and beach area! take your own binoculars and try to spot dolphins and seals or even if...

Kids loved the castle and museum, views along the beach are great. Free for all, which is a real bonus. Kids thought going up and down the tight stairs and looking out of the window seats was a big adventure.

Had decided to visit BF to go to the beach and Visocchis but had never visited the Castle before-what a wee treasure! Lovely,compact,interesting museum-which was free and well maintained. Something for everyone and the person on duty was so passionate and well informed. Go and see!
