Stopped here on the way up to John O'Groats and it's well worth the visit. The grounds are lovely and I can imagine they must be stunning when in full bloom. The house too is spectacular (more so from the outside) and it has a...More

The castle is stunning and well worth looking round, but the café is quite dreadful - watery coffee machine and very limited food choice, toilets not up to scratch and should be much better for so many visitors (over 100,000 last year). But all the...More

After being in the Dornoch area, we decided to pay a visit to the castle. I was surprised when we arrived that they had a falconry centre. I have a keen interest in raptors and wildlife so this was an added bonus. After a beautiful...More

A fair amount more to see at Dunrobin, but the guides at Castle of Mey are incredibly charming and the food at Mey is nicer than at Dunrobin. Tough call.
