We tried several times on the web to buy tour tickets. Finally, called and made a reservation over the phone.
Russell was our handy guide (there are no self-guided tours) and he was knowledgeable.
It's very popular to visit castles and places where the well-to-do lived. This is a stark contrast to that and far more appealing- especially for children. It's a hands-on learning experience about life in Scotland and how many lived. We can all appreciate the difficulties they experienced.
It's about a 1.5 hour visit (less than an hour from Edinburgh or Glasgow) and a wee bit more if you visit the associated train, library etc.
There is also hill waking if you like the outdoors.
