The castle was closed due to Covid but I decided to have a look at the outside and the gardens as I was on Skye. The car park has a cafe which was closed when I went although the toilets and large shop were open. It was raining and October so the gardens would not be at their best. Despite this there was some colour dotted around and there is a good network of walks. I will return in better weather when the castle opens again.

A great walk around the gardens and surroundings for the last day of the season. Unfortunately due to Covid did not get inside the castle so will need to return. Amazing space and nice photos in the sun! Dogs enjoyed the walk too!

Even though the castle was closed due to Covid, the gardens were still great! We spent a nice hour or two wandering around the gardens. They're gorgeous. They have a walled garden which reminded me of Peter Rabbit, a round garden, a waterfall and everything in between. They're expansive and vast but really easy to walk around. The price was £12 which I think was a little steep but I still enjoyed it, so it's no big deal. There are so many great opportunities for photos, including walking all the way down to the seal trip jetty and climbing the small hill. We even saw some seals!

Unfortunately, due to COVID, there was no access to the castle, no boat tours to the seal colony and the cafe was closed too. The gardens are colourful and well maintained but not very extensive. Dogs are thankfully allowed into all areas of the garden; good for us as we had our Cavapoo with us. Admission to the gardens was only £2 less than the full admission charge of £14, which seems a little unfair, perhaps, given the considerably reduced access. Still, we enjoyed our walk around the pretty gardens and got some great pictures of the castle. It may well be worth of 5 stars when all areas are accessible, but not currently. At present Dunvegan offers dubious value for money.....
