Nice view

The castle has a really nice view. The walk there was as much fun as the castle. Really loved. Someone may consider to take raincoat ;-)

After a short, flat walk from the car park this castle is fantastic. Whilst ruined, much has been done to allow you to walk on the different levels meaning you have access to how the castle would have been and allows you to see the best views of the north end of the loch. Well worth a trip and it's... More

Impressive old castle with fabulous views. The backdrop had mountains with snow on the top while the loch was blue and still in the sunshine.

A 50min walk from hotel but well worth it. Amazing place well looked after. Still cant believe how much of this fantastic castle is standing.

This is a fairly well preserved castle in an impressive location. Unfortunately it is NOT well sign posted (and not on our Garmin GPS). There is a very small dirt parking area just off the 85 and a short walk to the castle. Go to the right and cross under the train tracks. Parking and admission are free and the... More

Visited last Friday when weather was great. As previous reviewers have said, it is not signposted so keep an eye out as you drive along ! Once you have parked your car, you need to take the path that goes along the side of the railway track and then under the bridge (do not try and go over the railway... More

There was no sign post indicating where the castle is so look for two red and white striped posts at the side of the A85 which lead to a gravel parking lot. From there a four minute walk along a gravel path will bring you to the castle. The scenery is stunning and you can climb up to the top... More

This is a lovely day out, especially for the keen photographer. It is hard to get to if you haven't been there before, but there is a small parking area and a path leading straight to the castle. The views are amazing from every point of the castle, and there are information boards dotted around the castle to tell you... More

Easily accessed with beautiful views of surrounding mountains.. My little niece was besotted with the "princess castle".. Great place to have randomly found whilst passing by and no entry fee to the peninsula keeps you in the budget!

Involve a short walk with a stunning view. It was not open when we were there, but we walked around the exterior.
