  • Brilliant place to visit. The walks are peaceful and non too stressful. The castle is wonderfully restored inside with helpful guides. Taking the castle tour at your pace is a bonus. Plenty of activity things going on for the young ones. Highly recommend a day out here.

  • We really enjoyed our visit here. Tour is very good. Volunteers and staff were all helpful and many were very knowledgeable. Was impressed by the bilingual staff ready to welcome visitors and guide them in their native tongue :)

  • My daughter and I spent 4-5 hrs just looking around and talking to the guides in the rooms hearing all about the history. Being a Frazer myself (someone changed the s to a z when they hit America) it was a personal experience for me. beautiful grounds and great history! Great coffee and scone at the tea shop and don't forget the gift shop!! :-)

  • Well done to chef for pea and mint soup! And the little oatcakes to go with it. Best recipe I've found yet!

  • One word for this castle stunning. The views are fantastic, the staff are friendly and helpful.
