“Great castle”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

This is a great castle with stunning views across the glen. We tried to walk there from the car park at Kilmartin Museum and got chased by some cows. It was actually really funny but we were not going to risk trying to cross their path when they had their calfs beside them. So a couple of days later we drove and used the car park next to the castle and a shorter cow free walk, it was lovely. So if your in the area stop and take a look.

“Stunning location, fascinating details.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

There is so much to like about this place, not least it's comparative unvisitedness and that it's free of cost and interfering attendants. Probably my favourite castle in Scotland.
