Whilst in ruins, the castle has guided information to piece together the history of this area and its importance as a fortress and home over the centuries-gorgeous location

Great castle ruins in a beautiful setting. Free small car park. No entrance fee. Smooth loch mirrors the surrounding mountains. Bit muddy on approach path and inside. Good info boards. Lovely views. Would recommend.

Unadorned, well almost, the castle skeleton appears stark as you approach over the flats. There is enough left to make it easy to envisage what was there in its heyday but the signage complicates this and is well presented. A word of warning though, wellies...More

We visited this castle after visiting the Cruachan hollow mountain. The castle is free entry and free parking, but there are no signs, so you need to know where to turn off the road. A beautiful 10 minute walk (flat, muddy in places) to the...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
