Lovely little castle gave you views all over Broughty Ferry, The museum inside had plenty of exhibits and things to read about Broughty Ferry with free entry. Just a warning of very steep and narrow stairs inside!

Visited with my family and it was a very interesting place. Views from the battlements were great. There were a lot of informative displays throughout.

This is a surprisingly good attraction, and is also free to enter. Three floors of interesting exhibits up narrow stairs. Right on the coast by the beach. Lots of parking.

Each floor has a different display, which for my part didn't add to the castle experience. It's a small coastal fort. That's about it.

We love Broughty Ferry and Broughty Castle. A lovely little town with great shops and a beautiful beach. Combine a bit of shopping with a walk to the Castle then along the sea front.

A free venue with lots of history and good views over the river Tay. We enjoyed our visit and Broughty Ferry is a lovely town.
