Yes it is a ruin but lovely to look around and free. The surrounding trees are lovely and beginning to change colour. The kids enjoyed running around and playing in the stream down below it. I think the house is a guest house would be a cool place to stay. Worth a look around if you have the time.

I don't know if we missed something but we walked down and just saw a pile of bricks surrounded by scaffolding! The views and grounds surrounding this were lovely though so I would recommended the walk down. However this is probably not wheelchair friendly due to the steep hill back up and cobbles.

We stayed at the castle for three nights, and really enjoyed our stay. Once we finally figured out how to open the door, (and got the car across the bridge without incident), it was amazing exploring all the rooms in the castle. After going through all the rooms upstairs and down, we finally realised why we couldn't find a shower.... More

There's not much left of the once grand castle (a rendering was seen at the Rosslyn Chapel visitor center) & you'll need to book a night to stay inside the guesthouse. However, we roamed the outside grounds by the bridge & the area under the bridge (didn't enter the guesthouse complex as there were guests staying there). From Roslin Glen... More

We stayed at the castle for three nights in our first holiday to Scotland and the UK this month. It was fantastic property, the remains of a historic castle. The building was comfortably furnished, close to the historic (and popular tourist site) Rosslyn Chapel and the town of Rosslin. We enjoyed very much walking the grounds, relaxing in the beautiful...

Loved having our own castle for a few nights...worth every penny. Beautiful walking paths and a magical secret garden to explore. Make sure to stock up on supplies before you get to the castle though, local store is not well stocked. The Original Roslin Hotel is very close if you're needing a good pub or meal break while at the... More

This was one of our (mostly) annual trips to one of the many Landmark Trust properties in the UK. The trust rescues and restores interesting properties and finances this by leasing them as holiday lets. We have never been disappointed by their properties yet and Rosslyn Castle was no exception. I would recommend the castle for an interesting and relaxing... More

We didn't know whether there was anything at the end of the road when we started walking towards the castle, it was sort of like hiking going through trees and a graveyard which was like an adventure for us. When we eventually reached the end and found the castle we realised there was just a wall standing but nevertheless it... More

There isn't an awful lot left there to see. Steep, muddy walk up from the park. Must've been imposing in it's day!
