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.

Visited the castle on a few occasions and on a summers day there is no better place to be. Beach is lovely and didnt lose my toes when paddling lol. Lovely big park for the kids also and if you enjoy fishing well worth wetting a line in the Tay. If its warm remember the swim wear for both beach... More

The Castle is old and has lots of history and various alterations have taken place over time. Its unusual in having either 3 or 4 levels (can't remember which), inside is a small museum housed on the different levels. I liked it alot. The little beach next to it is fantastic on a warm day, a bit windy though.
