In line with Government advice, we have decided not to re-open the Castle as planned on the 1st April. We will continue to review the situation but at present are anticipating closure through until at least the end of June. We plan to keep in touch on Facebook, on Twitter and Instagram so do log in and join us on-line. In the meantime, from the Castle team, keep safe and we look forward to resuming normal service in due course.

  •   I have passed this castle many times and assumed it was empty inside and of limited interest. How wrong could I be! I thought it was charming inside. Definitely more quality then quantity. The audio guide is very worth while and gives you information on...More

  •   The Castle is situated a short distance from Braemar. It is the best maintained Castle I have ever been in. Built in 1628, and until recently lived in, it is furnished and contains many ancient relics of the past. Head-sets will explain the function of...More

  •   What a gem and what a fascinating history. The locals run this castle and they are friendly and knowledgeable. Kudos to them for keeping this quirky delightful place open. Everything about this castle is comfy and intriguing. My son and I loved it

      For all its prominent position at the top of a hill , this piece of history is rather overshadowed by its neighbouring north east castles. It is well worth a visit. The guided tour gave us a comprehensive run down on its past over the...More

  •   Not sure what I expected when we parked up, but stepping out of the trees it was lovely to behold the Castle. Picturesque against the mountains we wandered around from beautiful room to room. We were also given our own audio guide so we could...More

      We visited in Mid september. It was like stepping back in time. The castle is bursting with history and the community custodians are helpful and friendly. There is a really good audio guide aswell. Well recommended!!

Battle of Inverlochy Castle in 1431. The MacDonalds attacked the camp of the Earls of Mar and Atholl who were loyal to King James I of Scots. Battle was confused both parties withdrew unsure who had won. The Earl of Mar fled bare foot and horseless to his Castle of Kildrummy. https://t.co/hJwGFce5ly Braemarscastle photo

A reminder to #StayAtHome folks!

If you go carousing about Scotland’s historic sites now, you’re going to be about as welcome as the Wolf of Badenoch at Elgin Cathedral. That’s to say, VERY unpopular!

Do the right thing & #StayAtHome. Enjoy Scotland’s history online with us! https://t.co/HySMMj8DnS
