Very good castle situated on Dumbarton rock, towering over the town. To visit it is 20 minutes west of Glasgow by train (get off at Dumbarton east, turn right then left down Victoria street) its about 10 minutes walk. There is'nt many building to see the the castle but the views of the river Leven and Dumbarton town are fantastic. There is information both in the shop, the old guard house and doted about the grounds of the rock. A massive word of warning to visitors though, the castle is on a very steep hill, so you need to be fit and not afraid of heights! the castle is under going some renovation work to the governors house and the french prison which is the only part you can't get into but is still worth the £4.50 per adult to spent 1 and half hours.
Tip: go on a clear sunny day and bring a picnic.
