This is a cool castle and you will recognize it from a couple of movies you have seen (at least if you are 35+). Stop by for 10 minutes to take it in and get a photo op - and then move along with your...More

We went on what is effectively a private tour (restricted to12) to witness an astonishing feat of single-minded and virtual single-handed determination. I can remember when Castle Stalker was a crumbling shell in the early 1960s. It was bought in 1965 by Lt Col Stewart...More

We asked to visit the Castle many months ago, but it was booked. But we decided to check the view anyway. It was raining, but still was very nice. We stopped by a small path on the road and walked 500meters to have a close...More

Didn't get a chance to get to the castle itself, but it's stunning to see from land. Am planning on going back for this alone.
