The castle, gardens and museum are all very nice but definitely don't miss the falconry display - it is something very special. The hawk, owl, and Saker falcon were all extraordinary to see and the commentary was fascinating. Be sure to ask the falconer about...More

Dunrobin Castle is an interesting place to visit and entry prices are reasonable. The gardens are very nice and the views out to sea are stunning. This castle has a lengthy history. When you're inside, it's hard to imagine people actually live here, it's like...More

A large gothic pile on the coast this is a huge Victorian building with an impressive interior and formal Italian gardens that look slightly bizarre in this remote Scottish location.

Good mixture of gardens, family history and house tour. The owl/falcon show in the garden was excellent and the guy that runs it was most entertaining and skilled.

Allow about two hours for your visit, nice to view the castle at your own pace without a guide. If you have mobility issues there are quite a few staircases some of them very steep. It is a good photo opportunity outside but as usual...More

This is like a fairy tale castle. The interior is amazing along with the history of the place. Its a shame you cannot take photos inside but it was still a great visit even on a wet day. Make sure you catch the falconry display...More

How do people in wheelchairs or on mobility scooter get between the castle and the gardens? I can just see many staircases between castle at the top and gardens below. Is there another way, road, ramp etc please?

Once you go through the castle gates, we did not notice any ramps only stairs but I could be wrong. There may be a path that skirts the stairs for heavy equipment to get down to the gardens. It is a beautiful place to visit... More

Well, first of all, if you are any kind of history "buff" you will enjoy the visual of how the extremely wealthy lived and wha they surrounded themselves with. Dunrobin isn't actually old enough for my tastes but it's still... More
