Repeat visit, so all I had to do was walk in, see the history, see the art,see the armoury, and then the bit I like the view! Looked out from the 3rd floor watched the life boat go out on a shout, and then watched a small pod of dolphins go up river, day made! !

Lovely views, lovely grounds. Plenty to see for all tastes, suits young and old. Winding staircase to upper floors not suitable for those with walking difficulties.

Well worth a visit, and its free. Never been in the castle for years. But was pleasantly surprised. On a good day you may see dolphins in the River Tay, which would be a bonus.

Cute square castle at the end of the beach in brought ferry. Lively location with swans nearby so pleasant on hot days. I've never been inside it but even from the outside its picturesque and gives brought ferry some Scottish charm.

Always a fantastic wee break from the beach and the park. It is a great place to have a wee wander around and break up the monotony that is encouraging my grand children to find more interesting shells!

WE visited the Castle which was free and also includes a museum. The castle was built in 1496, it is on 4 levels accessed by an internal spiral staircase, Fascinating facts, somspectacular paintings and an "armoury Gallery" . There is also a n observation room at the top. The castle is cared for by "historic Scotland
