Dunvegan Castle And Gardens, Dunvegan Reviews

  • Stunning place very over priced though. £14 to go and see the castle and £12 if you want to just walk round the garden. Try walking along the road next to the car park its a fair walk about 4 miles but an easy walk. It leads you to Coral beach it is stunning there. Very difficult to get parked as folk dump their cars all over.

  • A well preserved old castle with a nice ocean view here on the northern part of Isle of Skye. One of many nice old castles and keeps that I passed by during my roadtrip, in England, Wales and Scotland back in 2001, that I took time to visit and enjoyed exploring. Many still in good condition and maintained, both small ones and other massive.

  • The Dunvegan Castle website lists a campsite called Glenbrittle Campsite, and represents it as being nearby, this however is untrue as it is a 28 mile - 54 minutes drive from the castle. Visitors beware especially when your better half is doing the navigation and arrangements; for this can lead to some typical discord. Just because it is on the net doesn't make it the truth. Dunvegan, however is a pleasant place, drive right past the castle and find a spot down the road where meets the shoreline, take a walk on the water's edge, take some photos of the castle, enjoy the view and save the entrance fees.

  • A bit pricy. There is not much to see inside the castle. Gardens are great and well maintained! For an additional fee you can take a boat trip from the pier to see sea-lions. (I think the boat trip is run by a different company)

  • Great castle and amazing boat trip Really interesting inside the castle, well worth a proper look around. The gardens were not in season yet but I’m sure they will be lovely in the summer. The highlight was the boat trip to see the seals - amazing!
