We loved Inveraray Castle and grounds. We ate lunch at the tea room in the basement of the castle, and that was fabulous, as well. We had a delightful time here. A must-see in Scotland.

The Castle & Gardens aren't open until 1st April. You can visit the outside of the Castle though and walk around the Estate.

My memory is that you paid as you entered the parking lot. Not sure if you could enter the grounds for a lower price or not. I will say the interior is amazing and worth the price!
