Dropped on this place by chance, moaning I hadn't seen a ruin so in we pulled. Carsluith isn't particularly huge but pretty fab nonetheless and love how there's little signs to tell you the rooms and such. Makes it easier. The views are pretty stunning...More

If you feel the need of a break from the fast moving traffic on the A75 trunk road which I guess is heading to or from the vehicle ferry, then this is a good spot to stop. This is a tower house rather than a...More

A fabulous little free treat to make a stop off whilst driving along the A75. Information boards give an overview of the history. Beautiful views of Wigtown over the water. The smoke house offers refreshments if needed.

Takes about 15 minutes to look around, it is free and you can combine it with refreshments at Marrbury smokehouse which is on the same site

Stopped here as we were staying over the road. Lovely that is is free, but seemingly so well maintained none-the-less. Really interesting insight into small Scottish castles and a good example given it is so well preserved.

Lovely views from this old,old castle. I saw red deer. Just watching from the top till it jump into the ferns. The Bistro lookes really worth a try. Mine was just a leg stretch.

Discovered by accident while exploring!! A great wee place, cool castle in a picturesque area, and directly adjacent to a lively cafe and smokehouse providing really good food. An excellent accidental discovery.

Another 'must see' Castle on our journey in this area. The location gives great views over the Wigtown Bay. Take care when coming on and off the main road.

Came to visit the castle and found a Smokehouse/Bistro as you entered. What lovely combination. Great views across to Wigtown Bay and Wigtown. the castle dates back to the 1400s. You can still see outlines of where the out buildings would have been. Built with...More
