I have visited this Mausoleum many times over the past few years but this is the first time since it's renovation by the national trust. The renovation work has transformed what was a derelict monument back to it's former status. The volunteers manning it's opening...More

We had a lovely walk in the wood followed by an interesting visit to the Mausoleum. It has been well restored, and our NT guide gave us lots of information about the history of the Darnley family. Not something that you’d spend all day doing,...More

Beautiful ancient knarley trees, Highland cow grazing and interesting mausoleum. However there was no way markers that we could see. There was a map at the start and some arrows, once out of the Highland cow section. There was also no information about the mausoleum,...More

Be prepared to walk. I guess around a mile each way. Small fee to pay for entrance, well worth the walk and the entrance free. A little bit spooky and dog friendly. Check entrance times before you travel.

Review isn't so much about the mausoleum itself as the surrounding areas. The mausoleum is beautiful but it's set in a beautiful location. Definitely worth a Sunday afternoon stroll :)
