This castle is beautiful as are the grounds. Well worth the visit. Be sure go to the gardens after viewing the interior.

After touring 6 castles in Scotland, our family voted Dunrobin the BEST to tour!!! Beside the castle looking like it is right out of a fairytale, the gardens were BEAUTIFUL. Other highlights: Self tour of the castle so you can go at your own pace...More

Perfect visit with a complete birds of prey show in the gardens included in the ticket and gaelic music in the castle. I was with my son 13yo and he liked a lot without getting bored. It's also possible to play crockett in the gardens.

We came during winter...but were very lucky with the weather. The gardens and coffee shop were still open, we couldn’t believe it! The castle is by far the best I’ve ever seen in the UK and the gardens literally overlook the sea. Stunning place.

We were late in the year to truly appreciate the gardens. The trophy rooms off to the north of the gardens has one of the most intense collections of game trophies mixed with mementos of a different era. I was more fascinated with the architecture...More

This is an amazing castle, and steeped in history, (good and bad). The staff are so knowledgeable and keen to answer questions. When you enter the castle you are faced with a big open fire which gave it a rustic look and a cosy feel....More

The external view of the castle and the gardens are breath taking. Picture perfect. The inside is tired and shows the wear of the many many visitors to this place. The attraction can be very busy, keep that in mind if you're time poor.

A fair amount more to see at Dunrobin, but the guides at Castle of Mey are incredibly charming and the food at Mey is nicer than at Dunrobin. Tough call.
