Castle ruins on the border of the river. Text boards (only in English) with a relative small amount of explanation on the how and why. Free entry, max 20 minutes.

Thanks for your review. Yes we do need to think of interpretation boards in other languages too, will need to raise the funding though. It is now a ruin but was important in the early history of Scotland used by King Kenneth McAlpin and King Malcolm Canmhor and his wife, Queen Margaret (St Margaret). It was once one of the largest castle in Scotland.

You miss it when you are not looking. Wich is a ashame. It's worth a quick look. A small ruin a bit overgrown but you see people take care of it. It's smal does not take a lot of time but it's worth the efford.

The signage and drawings supplied by the local community group give you an idea of what this place once was. This is not Edinburgh or Stirling Castle , however when you visit Braemar have a look at Kindrochit and let your mind run wild.

Thank you for your review. It is a fun castle, isn't it. And fascinating to think of the feet who have walked there - King Malcolm Canmhor, Robert the Bruce, Queen Margaret (St Margaret)!

As castle ruins go, this one is distinctly on the small side. There are a few notice boards to help you picture what was originally here, but even reading them all fully you are unlikely to spend any more than 30 minutes here.

By all means have a look if you are in Braemar, but don't stop deliberately just to see this less than impressive ruin.

Sorry you found Kindrochit underwhelming. Once it was one of the largest castle's in Scotland! but you're right, there's not tooo much left now, still worth a visit though. Good to tie it in with ta visit to Braemar other Castle - open 1st April to end of October.

Pick up the free guide leaflet in the village and spend a few minutes exploring the castle ruins. Lovely setting.

Thank you fo your review. It is great fun to explore the ruins and let your imgination take over. Hard to believe Kings and Queens including St Margaret and Robert the Bruce walked these corridors.
