Gardens and Grounds

The extensive parklands in their magnificent Highland setting form part of a large estate with many walks and trails. The landscaped grounds include superb woodlands and the 9 acre Hercules Garden has been painstakingly restored. There is a deer park and pony trekking centre close to the Castle and children will be thrilled by our woodland advenuture playground.

Other facilities

Ground floor audio visual room for those not wanting to use the stairs.  A scooter is available for hire for those with limited mobility to access the gardens. 

Castle Tours

Accompanied and guided tours are available at no extra cost for groups of 12 or more, subject to availability. Booking is recommended and booked tours are given priority. At busy times and in high season it is not always possible to provide dedicated guides but in such circumstances guides are available along the visitor route to answer questions during free flow tours. Tours take about 50 minutes.
