Lovely walk to the castle and views all around. Car parking available just after the Inveraray turn off as you head along A85 to Oban. A favourite location for dog walkers and tourists alike. Well worth a visit - beware of the midges!

Cute castle. Not marked well so you have to look for it. We took pictures from the road rather then go back in the morning once they were open.

We stopped here on our way to Glen Coe and almost missed the entry, as there is no sign on the road. The ruins are fun to explore and the lack of crowds was really nice as well.

In the middle of rolling mountains and meadows is this wonderfully evocative castle, you can almost hear the bagpipes as you wander around the land surrounding the castle. Take sturdy shoes with you. It is a joy to wander around the peatland just keeping the...More

It’s very hard to find the road to actually go in the castle. Just ask visitors and locals to help. There is no signs. This is a hidden gem. It was very awesome to be in the castle and learn the history! We are from...More

It is not that easy to find as we never saw a sign for either the castle or the carpark. The turn in is just before the railway bridge. Short walk from carpark to the castle (which is free) through a field with Highland cattle....More

It's a fair Castle, what you see is what you get. Great views over the lake, a trail where some Angus can be seen. Good indications inside.

This castle is not signposted from the road and is free to enter but it looks like an entry lodge is being built so that may change. Because it was free we didn't expect much but we were very wrong. Firstly the location is stunning...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
