We had the triple pass (here, Glamis and Blair) so we're looking forward to comparing. Although smaller than either it was interesting well laid out and well worth the visit. I agree that the ivory carvings are disturbing to a modern audience (as mentioned in a number of reviews below) but these were accepted at the time they were purchased and relevant to the history of the house so they did not upset me. The links to Scottish history were well expressed. The grounds were lovely and we enjoyed.

What a gem of a find. Worth going off the beaten track to discover. A very well preserved and presented Historic Scotland property. Should be better promoted but there are no brochures on this specific property. Children would love the many rooms and areas to explore and imagine themselves back in the days!!!I have never seen so many historic facilities ensuite to the chambers !!! The gardens are a great place to picnic.

We visited the castle on our way home from a holiday. It was a bit smaller than I was expecting but there was still plenty to keep us entertained for an hour and a half. We received a very warm welcome and the kids were given question sheets to answer on their way round which they really enjoyed doing and kept their attention. There was just the right amount of information dotted around the castle to keep us interested but not overwhelmed. Would definitely recommend a visit.
