Huntingtower Castle, Perth Reviews

  • I was quite surprised to see this place as quiet as it was, but it was an interesting stop. The woman working (Alison maybe?) was an absolute delight. She gave us a quick overview of the castle, offered to take our picture for us, and more. I would recommend stopping by if you're in the area (especially if you have the explorer pass).

  • A good place because it has a lot of the original historic feel to it. Not a grand place (it is a semi ruin) but a good place to see if you are from Australia or USA

  • My family and I had had most of a great day at Scone Palace, but on our way back to our accommodation for the Half Term Week in Almondbank (very close to Huntingtower) we offered my young son a quick half hour whizzing round the castle. We are Historic Environment Scotland members, so we weren't worried about the cost directly, as it was already covered in our membership. As we walked across the car-park and through the gate however, I noticed that we wouldn't have too much time there even if we wanted it, as we were just five minutes BEFORE the last entry time, (which itself was an hour before closure). Foolishly I thought that a quick look around would be fine, as we would still be long gone before the venue actually closed, more than an hour away. Unfortunately we were literally met before we got in the door by an extremely rude and utterly unmovable member of staff who was apparently more interested in leaving early than letting Historic Scotland members gain entry. This member of staff was determined that we were not able to get in, suggesting that even though his clock was clearly wrong he had to abide by what time it said, or else he would have to let "everyone else in". (There was no one else waiting or arriving in the car-park, even as we were effectively 'invited to leave'). I have to say that I have never been treated in such a contemptuous way by anyone, let alone someone who I am effectively contributing to paying their salary. This was such an unnecessary incident, totally of that member of staff's making and leaving an extremely poor experience for me and my family to remember for many years to come. We have since complained to Historic Scotland, but despite an apology, we only got the offer of being shown around the castle again. With the threat of that member of staff being there still, we have decided that the experience is well avoided. As such, my recommendation to anyone who might be contemplating arriving at this destination is to beware, as a gratuitously extremely rude and arrogant person works there, and you never know when they might unleash that rudeness at you - and your family!

  • Open day visit, lovely example and history of these towers come joined mansion! Roof top access and views are fun. Maintained in a good state

  • Loved this little place as mostly still intact inside with windows toilets flooring and fire places shioban in the shop took us round the outside of the castle explaining where the old door etc was and exploded how they think the castle had looked she was extremely helpful and informative and the kids loved getting in the roof definitely worth a trip
