Lots to see and do. Absolutely lovely. Great for dog walking and lots of picnic spots. The castle itself is well worth a visit.

We have been at the Dean Castle for a concert. The place is wonderful, also the people inside (Linda, Jason and their friends are very kind with people). The building is very interesting to see, also the such wonderful collection of historical instruments. Warm recommended. Davide
