Nice afternoon out. Our children very much enjoyed it. Very steep stairs though. If you visit, you might see a dolphin from the viewing area.

My wife and I went to the castle expecting to be in and out in half an hour. Instead we got talking to Andy who is not only extremely friendly, knowledgeable but also a great advertisement for Dundee hospitality. Thanks Andy

An excellent attraction to take the children to, on a pleasant, sunny day. The inner levels have many historical displays and the additional 'Lookout Post' which was added to the castle for spotting enemy seagoing vessels during the wars. Outside has a great 'Play park'...More

Don't know why I have never visited the Castle before. It is a lovely little museum on several floors, each with a different theme . Visited with my eleven year old grandson who loved it. He was enthusiastic about the views from the little windows...More
