  • We were really lucky up in August 2017 the weather was fantastic ..we got on a boat trip behind the castle where we found lots of seals .place is so magical well looked after ❤

  • Highly recommend visiting this place, if you're in the area. Very beautiful and quiet. Do the boat tour and see some seals. The gardens are well maintained. I'll definitely be there again.

  • A nice place, a real castle sometimes the owner live here. The portraits are beautiful, not too heavy. The garden was awesome. It's more a botanical garden that only a garden. So many flowers and trees beautifully enhanced. The only reason I have not put 5 stars is the price. 13£ it's a bit too much I think

  • The outer look of the castle not so special, but go inside and the ornamental nature of the place comes into full view. History, old artworks, sculpture are just a few things you will see. There is a 16th century Gaelic claymore sword that caught my eye. Outside there are 3 gardens the water garden was my favourite, it had waterfalls and streams among the flowers. I had a good day.

  • Situated in a lovely location Dunvegan Castle is a must see if you're on holiday on Skye, the interior of the castle is lovely ( no photography in the castle ) and the gardens equally spectacular. Lots to see and do.
