We really enjoyed our visit to Dunvegan. The gardens were lovely even though it was mid May. I'm sure they would be amazing in the summer. We loved the water fall area. The castle itself was great, and associated with Flora MacDonald. There is a...More
Came here with the family with low expectations and yet I was still let down. There was this odd lady who I had an awkward interaction with in the cafe toilets and after that every corner I turned she was there. The castle itself was...More
Had read so much about this castle and its history that it was a true joy to actually see the castle. Seeing the 'fairy flag' which is now basically in tatters made the entire trip worthwhile. So much of the clan's history and beliefs abounds...More
We almost skipped this because it was raining out, but so glad we didn't! The castle was quite interesting, but what really stuck with us was the amazing gardens! Even in the rain, we walked for a long time through the many varied gardens. We...More
To be honest, I don't remember much about the castle. What I remember are the gardens!! They were lovely and we spend most of our time slowly strolling through. So many colors and varieties and they all smelled so good. Great gardens!

This attraction can accommodate a very large amount of people. You will not have a problem getting tickets at the location when you arrive. There is no way they would reach the limit for visitors at any one time. It's huge and relatively out of the way for many travellers to go. Be sure to leave yourself enough time to tour. They close the gates and ask you to leave by 5:00 and the souvenire shop closed at 4. We only arrived just before 4 so we had to rush and didn't get to enjoy the amazing gardens surrounding the castle. It's well worth spending at least 2 hours there.
