Cross the River Dee by boat to visit this enchanting castle on its own island. Once the bustling base of its creator, Archibald the Grim, it is now an ideal spot for exploring, picnicking and perhaps, painting. The island is rich with wildflowers in...more

We had a nice visit to this medieval Castle. The 900 metre walk is pleasant and the boat ride is unique to this castle. Nice staff, Sam was very helpful for information as well as a boat driver and picture taker for our family.

Our visit started in the visitor center, had a lovely conversation with the gentleman selling the tickets....More

The Osprey centre is a small building adjacent to the car parking area for the castle. There is small toilet block there too. Just Park up, wander in, buy tickets and ask any questions you have as the staff all seem very helpful. We were there last week and when I get a min I will leave a review - all positive and well worth the trip. Enjoy!
