The place has a stunning view beside of waterfalls and cliffs. Unfortunately, the castle was closed during my visit because of the weather. Definitely, I'm going back!
Beautiful ruins, quite a large complex. Could keep me interested for hours...Kids lasted about 2! (4&8 years old). Truly stunning scenery though.
Amazing coastal location for a castle. Climb in an out of the Castle not got the faint hearted. Brilliant views
Must see Location close to Aberdeen and Edinburgh. Can enter Castle but you get a better view nearby. 30 minute walk to Stonehaven town where you can get famous Fish and Chips and Icecream.
Great place to visit, beautiful views, specially stunning view on sea from windows of castle. Really worth of 7£ per adult person. I can truly recommend this castle to anyone, recommend to see in a good weather.
