Set about 5 miles outside Perth, well out in the country, this charming castle built by the Wemyss family is more than worth a visit. An interesting history, lots of nook and crannies to explore and some wonderful apple trees to boot.

Great historical viit regarding the Wemyss family. Wemyss family tasked with escorting future Queen for King Kames of Scotland and then escorting her to London when the English offered the throne of England to King James of Scotland.
Rhynd is very small not even a village! and you would be at least 1 hr from Edinburgh.
Edinburgh Airport is closest but accessing the location requires a car
Perth is the closest main centre for accommodation etc.
