A bare bones kind of place but we loved it. You could get a real feel for the structure and life in the place. It was cold and drafts came from everywhere and we felt that this only added to the atmosphere. Top marks also...More

This is a great place for a visit if you are on your way to Killin, Aberfeldy or if you are just in Aberfeldy for the day. Take your camera. For information, this castle can be hired for weddings etc.

My second visit to Castle Menzies. I always find it fascinating and must say the Walled Garden is lovely. The walls are so high and thick! It is still the seat of the Clan Menzies and the history is very interesting. The Strath Tay Valley...More

Small Scottish Castle with interesting history. Much restored structure but minimal internal change. Good guide notes in each room. Informative 30 minute video to view before starting tour. Tearoom closed during winter months (late October onwards). Well worth a detour.
