The audio guide for the tour was very entertaining and informative, you can't help but laugh out loud. Lots of interesting historical perspective as well. No cafe but the gift shop, though small, had a great selection.

This is an amazing partly ruined castle. People who are fans of Outlander have been flocking to it and other places that were used in making of the programme. And fans of Monty Python would also enjoy it. But, even if you did not go...More
You can purchase entry there. If you are going to see a lot of castles while you are in Scotland, I would suggest looking into purchasing an Explorer Pass. My husband and I save a lot of money by purchasing one. Definitely... More
