      I liked the castle. We did the audio tour which was interesting. The audio samples are not to long, just right! You can see the love of the community in and outside the castle. Go visit if you’re nearby!

  •   Enjoyed the tour of the castle by Sheila (Really good tour guide). Excellent staff and loved the castle, interesting rooms and fortifications. Well worth a visit and need support to help raise the money to restore it fully. Thank you

      Seeing the castle from the outside is fine, but touring, listening to the hand held guide, or even better following around with one of the live guides tell you so much about the history of where you are

      The local community are trying to keep this place going as no one lives there now. Although not grand like other castles it does tell an interesting story. Mainly decorated from the 1950s when the last people lived there. The staff were keen to make...More

On this day in 1553 the Lady Jane Grey started the 1st of her 9 days as Queen of England, before her imprisonment and later execution.
On a less morbid but just as interesting note, we are pleased to announce that the castle is now open 7 days a week for the remainder of July and all of August.
We look forward to welcoming all of you into the castle!

Quite a happening in the brand new Duke of Rothesay Pavilion in the Games Park this afternoon. This week's fantastic pipe band was the Lonach from Strathdon marching all the way into the fabulous Highland Games Centre.
