Quite a hill up to it- run by HES so pay or free to members. Needs a guide really. But interesting if you like castles and lots of it to see.

This was our first stop on our honeymoon touring Scotland, we saw it from the road and just had to stop and have a wonder round. They lady in the shop was so friendly, helpful and signed us up to membership, but no pressure as it made sense as we would use it through out our time in Scotland. This Castle was small but really lovely and it was quite when we went, so we could take our time and look properly. Thanks

In August, swallows fly in and out of the windows and you can hear and sometimes see their chicks in the nests too. The information boards are useful as is the display in the ticket place - worth a read so you get a feel for the history of the castle and the people who lived there. Great view from the top, and look out for graffiti- oldest one we found was dated 1814.

we enjoyed an hour visiting castle and wildlife garden. We are members of Heritage so of course cost us nothing. Look out for swallows and other birds and possibly the odd red squirrel
