Very beautiful castle and grounds. The children’s play park is excellent and there is plenty space to run around. There is a buggy friendly walk around the loch.

Brodie provided the perfect contrast on a day of castle hunting that started with a ruin (Urquhart), a residence (Cawdor) and ended with this former home that is now under control of Historic Scotland. It's a walk through time to see its many rooms, including...More

Regular visitor to this wonderful Castle and the Garden is a great new addition. My only comment would be that a few arrows for the non-guided Castle tours would greatly help the flow in busy times....

Lovely setting. Superb choice of breakfast, delicious. Very tempted by all the cakes and tray-bakes on offer as a well. Will definitely return.
