The picture of the castle doesn't do justice to it's position which is right on the coast. Fabulour views. Enjoyable tour around the inside of the castle and the grounds are lovely. Spent a lovely sunny day here and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Apart from having a castle which offers lots of walks around the area. You have a choice of forestry areas to walk in or a beach. There is a huge swan pond on the grounds as well. Easy to get to.

Popped down for a visit today even though it was end of season and most everything garden-wise was dead. Plus it was raining pretty steady but that didn't stop us from an amazing look at our 6th castle this trip. Very nice paintings and rooms...More

I'd say if you're at all interested in historic places and areas of natural beauty, join the Scottish National Trust. If not, and it's just a playground you're after, there are plenty elsewhere. The Scottish National Trust... More

I would ask the park about the zip lines. If that is the only reason to visit the park, then there are others (depending on where you live or circulate) where they are available. The cost for the park is the entire... More
