Recommend taking the shuttle up to the castle. We skipped the castle tour and did the red trail hike (upper glen) to the waterfall. Highly recommended hike. Took about 90 mins RT to the waterfall. Much more scenic than the route from the car park...More

Yes, we took a wrong turn somewhere and drove in from the back of the park. I'd do that again. The gardens were wonderful, with opportunities to sit, enjoy, and talk with other travelers. It is wonderful to see new plants starting out, other plants...More

We spent the best day of our first visit to NI here with glorious weather and amazing scenery. The convenient bus to the castle was very welcome and the gardens a delight to experience. Wild remote and yet so peaceful.
