Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Castle is lovely - but don’t trust your satnav! My satnav took me up a Very bumpy track that leads to the castle, as I went in winter it was quite waterlogged and I ended up getting stuck with my wheels spinning. Then the RAC van that came to tow me got stuck. I’d recommend parking somewhere in a village nearby and walking to the castle. It’s a lovely one to see - you can go inside and see the remains of the spiral staircase.

This is an unmarked ruin near Ballater. Beautiful spot, remarkable ruins and perfectly quiet lonely spot. Of all castles, this was a fave simply because it’s just enough…

We discovered this location quite by accident during a walk around the 7 bridges of Ballater.
It is a shame that it is not better publicised as there is a fascinating history attached to it .
Glad we found it.

Went up to Knock Castle with friends, beautiful still evening, very spooky, especially with the gruesome back story.
