  • A very knowledgeable and pleasant guide. The castle has a full interior from different owners. A great little gem in the countryside.

  • Such a small intimate castle in a peaceful setting. By far one of our favourite places. You don't need to go in the castle as there are two lovely woodland walks around the grounds with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Be aware the NTS is a charity and desperately needs donations to help them. Please pay the £2 parking charges as this helps fund the maintenance of castle and grounds

  • Hope was our guide and she was very knowledgeable. We had a great tour and will return xx

  • Great small castle with nice history dating back to 1457. The last owning family Forbes owed it the best known history. The Forbes lived there nearly 400 years. In 1963 it went to the National Trust for Scotland.

  • Incredibly amazing place for everyone! Suitable for having a walk, taking nice photos and enjoying the special atmosphere. Highly recommended:)
