Dunrobin Castle was part of an Odyssey tour in May of 2018. The grounds are beautiful and we saw a falconry exhibit. One of the falcons landed on the head of a woman in our group. Luckily she works with animals and was not at...More

You won't want to miss this castle set atop a hill above the gardens. It's as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. The rooms were all tastefully furnished with period pieces. The falconry outside was delightful to witness. I've never before...More

Dunrobin is a must stop on the Northcoast 500, even if it is just to snap the somewhat fairytale-like exterior (put into place in the mid-1800s). Just north of Golspie, Dunrobin is easy to find, with plenty of parking, an impressive façade, a beautifully maintained...More

The style, quality and grounds of Dunrobin must rival any castle in the world. The place is GRAND and immaculately kept. The whole visit experience was excellent, including the restaurant and especially the falconry demonstration. Definitely the best falconry show I have seen - and...More

Admittedly the Castle was closed at end of season, certainly when I was there, but the gardens and views looking down and across the water were spectacular. Worth even in the rain walking all round yet colourful enough too to be interesting. Worthy of a...More

We had run out of things to do for the day and so had decided to drive north and check off a couple of things on our list for the next day. Halfway through the drive, we see this gorgeous castle emerge from the trees!...More

We arrived at the castle late in the afternoon, passed closing time. While most people would call this poor planning, we did so on purpose after our host told us that the gardens are open past the castle's closing time. The view, even on a...More

Lots of free parking is available in big car parks but it is worthwhile trying your luck closer to the castle if you have mobility issues as you are able to park in the drive. This, and the portaloos by the front entrance, do spoil...More
