Worth a visit as the ruin is very interesting and the climb to the top is a must but don't do it if you're scared of heights.

Crookston castle is a great wee place to visit not much has changed in sixty years apart from the gated area around it and closed not like when I was young and we had picnics there in Sumer and slid down the hill in trays

This is a little visited castle but still very interesting. It is situated in a large social housing area which probably explains why it doesn't get a great deal of visitors. It is still very interesting and well kept.

This is a lovely spot to walk to for fresh air in any weather. Not much left to see, however a climb to the top is recommended for the views.

Great wee place, the bare walls of the place really give you a great sense of the history. Also, seriously good views from the top - only advice is that if you are bad with ladders do not bother coming here haha.
