This castle is a bit off the beaten track but well worth seeking out. Small in scale but there is plenty of history to be learn't here. We spent a couple of hours looking round the castle and orchards. Good for children as they can explore all around the castle.

This castle is worth seeing but a guide book is a must as there are no or very few signs indicating what the rooms were used for or any other information.It was also very badly lit.

Out by River Tay in spectacular countryside. You drive through a housing estate and then down a lane into a farm, follow signs and carry on to the car park beside the castle.

It is a shell with information boards showing what each room would have looked like, there is much to explore here and slowly make your way to the roof where you can get outside.

There was scaffolding on one side where the work had been halted due to nesting bats, likely to October but it didn't impact on our visit.

Had a lovely peaceful lunch on one of the tables beside the orchard. Small shop and toilet.

You can pick fruit from the orchard. We had a lovely visit to this Historic Scotland site. Highly recommended and would come back.

Set about 5 miles outside Perth, well out in the country, this charming castle built by the Wemyss family is more than worth a visit. An interesting history, lots of nook and crannies to explore and some wonderful apple trees to boot.

I walked 5.1 miles to go from Perth to the castle and walked 5.1 miles to go back. Despite the aching feet, I would do it again. There is no bus that take you there , just leave you nearby, if one does not like to walk, better rent a car . The castle is small and it was under a reform but, even thou I enjoyed the time and the way that I got there.
