We are now closed for the winter.

The Castle has no central heating, so we have to drain the water

to avoid frozen pipes! 

We will be open again on Wednesday 3rd April

and look forward to welcoming visitors to the Castle in 2019!


 

  •   The staff are very knowledgeable, all volunteers, you pay a small amount to get in which includes a tour 👍. Really interesting lots to see, and discuss with the staff. Free parking. We will revisit this year should the opportunity arise. There are toilets onsite.

      The castle is fascinating, and the tour guide was knowledgable, enthusiastic and entertaining. This is a castle tour where you get to see almost every room, with lots of interesting supporting furniture and artefacts and stories. The place has been rescued but needs a lot...More

  •   The castle actually looks a lot more like an ordinary house with the interior decoration and the audiotour has very nice stories to tell about the rooms, the house and its inhabitants. With interesting short stories and tales. Lovely 360 views on the surroundings.

      The audio tour of this castle makes the experience very worthwhile. The self-guided audio tour allows you to move at your own pace, and choose to hear more about each room, and the history behind it. The staff is very knowledgeable about the Braemar area...More
