Owner description: This picturesque castle, built in 1220, holds the title of the most photographed castle in Scotland.
Reviewed 28 March 2018

A stunning castle constructed in the 12th/13th century to protect and defend the lands of Kintail against Vikings. Steeped in history of battles and invasions that resulted in parts of the castle being destructed, the castle underwent reconstruction works which were completed in 1932. There is an onsite visitors centre complete with coffee and gift shops.

Just happened to stumble on this wonderful castle with its majestic setting whilst driving through the highlands. This chocolate box picture castle had the must stop and investigate more. Not being heavily influenced on the Scottish history and no doubt to manty this is the equivalent of Winsor Castle to us south of the boarder.
I found it very interesting and glad I stopped on my travels. Great pictures.

Not the biggest castle. However the breathtaking views make up for it.
Really fell in love with this place.

We didn't actually visit the inside of the castle but stopped on our road trip to visit the cafe, toilet and gift shop all of which were of a high standard. Lovely photo opportunities so well worth pulling over on your journey.
