Very well taking care of. Great interior, replica of the piano resembles one from Buckingham Palace. Lovely garden and beautiful estate. Can spend half of the day just wondering around. Very neat pine-corn summer house. Castle situated very beautifully with wonderful views on the water. Staff was exceptional and had many great stories to share.

Beautiful castle and grounds, reasonably priced for family ticket. Kids had an absolute ball doing the mice and safari hunt. Huge well done to Alec in the castle who gave a personal tour to my little ones, they were engrossed when he was telling about the history, made it so interactive for them. He even took the time to show us items of particular interest to us (as we are nurses and there was a photo of one of the royals in nurse uniform). Kids loved the adventure park. Great day out.

There is something for everyone here. The castle was very interesting with plenty of rooms to explore and staff to chat to about the history of the place. The country park has gardens, play parks, and many other things to see, such as the Bronze Age Roundhouse! The cafe near the main car park was nice and offered a good range of cakes, snacks and drinks, as well as indoor and outdoor seating. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Arran.

Let me start with the gardens, lots of beautiful paths and gardens to spend time walking around. Now the castle, I have seldom seen such beauty in any building I have visited before. The overall construction is grand in every sense. Now on to the furniture and other items on display. I have never seen such craftsmanship as that on display here, I was absolutely blown away by just how beautiful it is. I will include a couple of pictures that I hope give some idea of what I mean.

National Trust Scotland ... entry free for National Trust UK members. Beautiful gardens, we were probably more impressed with the gardens than the house. Hundreds of stuffed deer heads not really my kind of 'great'! Stunning plants, incredibly well kept, and a 'must play' mirrors sculpture. Great history, great guides, plenty to see. Big parking area, no height restrictions. We'll worth a visit if on Arran.
