I visited mainly because of the 'Macbeth' connection. This is a magical little castle and very much lived in. The owner wanders about amongst the visitors and everyone is very keen to help you make the most of your visit. Even the gift shop is more interesting. The owner likes art and her walls bristle with modern art mingling with the inherited portraits and it somehow works. Went for a brieif visit and ended up walking round and about for six hours. I loved it.

We first visited this castle and thoroughly enjoyed our time in 2008. We had a great tour of a very pretty castle and gardens then a great lunch with a fabulous highland pie. Wew enjoyed it so much we went back later the same week to the food fayre.
We returned this year and much anticipated a nice lunch and walk round the gardens. The castle gardens remain good but we felt ripped off by the food as £4.25 for a dry beef sandwich in a box without a plate or salad, no hot food options or anything scottish in flavour at all, tiny portion of baked potato with filling. Overall we paid over £20.00 to get in and have the poorest lunch of our trip. We were greatly disappointed although would still recommend the castle and gardens just take a packed lunch.

Although associated with the events of Shakespeare's "Scottish play," the castle was not actually built until centuries after Duncan's death. The castle is what you imagine a Scottish castle to look like, with an ancient keep, moat and drawbridge. The notes in the various rooms you tour (self-guided) were written by the late Earl and are sometimes quirky and humorous. Still a private home, the Castle has a homey, lived-in feel despite its grandness and fine art and furnishings. There is a cafeteria and shop on the premises, as well as a golf course. The gardens are beautiful, though I didn't seem them at their best since I visited on a cool grey day. Check on opening times because the castle is open to visitors only from May to October.

Plan on spending about an hour at this well presented attraction. The location is rural and the grounds are beautiful. This attraction allows you to visit many of the rooms. Information is provided about each room, typed and posted. The descriptions are lengthy and take awhile to read, often causing congestion in the small rooms. The dungeon and original kitchen are interesting as well as the original 14th century tree in the basement. Make sure to visit the beautiful gardens. The stairs aren't too steep so the upper floor is easily accessed. All in all, a great visit.
