One of the castles under the care of Historic Scotland. It was on our to do list before we hopped a plane from Mexico. This is a great castle to see. Rich with history but, not as touristy as the big ones of Stirling or Edinburgh. We quite enjoy the relaxed pace of the smaller less known castles. This one did not disappoint. We were almost the only people at the site. Having the place just about to ourselves meant we had the time to stroll the grounds, take in the various points of interest and get really great pictures not full of hoards of strangers.
If you want to relax and take your time touring some of the great castles rich in Scottish history this and others like it are wonderful choices. As a bonus we also toured St. Fillan’s Church, which is next door and is a not to missed experience. We have separately reviewed the church.
It took about 2 hours to see both places and really enjoy the history of the castle and church. Highly recommend these two locations.
