This castle has amazing views and is well preserved. You can climb up to the turrets and get beautiful views over Loch Awe. It is totally free to park and walk to which is always a bonus. We had some difficulty finding it because the car park to walk to the castle is not signposted from the A85 and we... More

Amazingly atmospheric with great views. I would recommend first thing in the mornings as groups arrive a little later and it loses some of its sense of isolation

This is a MUST if you are stopping anywhere near Loch Awe. From a distance (Loch Awe Hotel) the building doesn't look like it is in good nick but when you are actually inside it, it is stunning. One of the nicest building I have seen in a long time (but it doesn't beat the wee kirk just up the... More

Nice walk to the castle. Car park can get quite full and uneven surfaces. Free to enter just park and walk to the castle. After a 10-15 min walk you arrive and can explore various parts. Lots of steps here and there but amazing views. Pieces of information dotted around explaining different areas of the castle. Nice afternoon to explore... More

a little gem that is not signposted from the road. Wee walk from car park but worth it to see the views down Loch Awe.

Loch Awe is the third largest freshwater loch in Scotland and has stunning scenery including castles. Great views of the loch from the Loch Awe hotel.

Took some family members for a walk out to the castle again this weekend. It's always great to see the surprise on folks faces when it comes into view.
