Love this place. So glad we made the drive. Loved the history of it but it's location is amazing. We loved the walk into the castle and the inside was really amazing

The other reviewers were right, the castle is a bit of a challenge to find. Just look for the turn out on the right after you cross the bridge. Lot is VERY small so you have to be patient and having a small car helps....More

Lovely walk out to the castle, so peaceful with STUNNING scenery. NOT signposted from the road so difficult to find. The info boards in the castle gave a good overall background to the castle. Picture perfect.

We took a short walk to this fascinating castle and enjoyed a ramble around its interior. This overlooks the Loch and has a great location. Take a walk to it or head by boat!

Stunning views across the loch, an amazing place but it is not very well sign posted. We found it purely by chance. It is worth visiting if you can find it!

The castle was not signposted and rather difficult to find had we not been given very good directions. Pretty castle with beautiful views. Due to its secluded nature, it's less touristy.

Nice little castle ruin, no admission fee, a short (half mile) walk from the parking lot, and a great view of the loch. A slight battle with other tourists, but nothing like at the main castles.

It's peaceful and wild and takes you back to the thinking that you are part of the royals and clans that ruled this place. You can get some stunning photos and spend ages looking over the loch and walking through the surrounding areas. The backdrop...More

Hi! The castle is closed which means you can't climb to the top of it, but don't let that stop you. You can walk round it and there are places you can see into the interior. It's still well worth a visit for its location... More
