Beautiful castle with amazing views. The castle was built in 1369. It is surrounded by water. Enjoy the short boat trip across the river to reach the island fortress. Enjoy and get up close to the artillery fortification. Huge historical interest and plenty of information about it. This castle is one of the most historic castles in Scotland with connections to the wars of independence.  Wonderfully atmospheric place, where it is easy to imagine what life was like 700 hundred years ago.
