Not bad entry fed of £8 for Castle and grounds. _A good few rooms to see inside the house and a great garden walk, which can be uphill in parts but not too tiring and well worth it. Only, complaint is there were no plain scones in the cafe! Would definitely go again.

Excellent visit today, quite quiet but very nice. Good guides in the rooms in the castle. Lovely walk through the gardens. Nice drinks from the cafe. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Arran.

Great place to go for a nice walk, the adventure playground is awesome. Tearoom is tasty plenty for the kids to do. I would like to see an obstacle course for older kids/adults but great place to go.

We visited twice during our week on Arran. The playground is amazing, gardens are beautiful and though we didn't see any red squirrels, going into the squirrel hid was great fun! Would definitely recommend and visit again.

The house, cafe and gift shop were closed due to restrictions but we enjoyed the beautiful grounds so much. There is plenty to enjoy for all ages. The fairy houses in the wood are a joy for everyone. A special treat was seeing a red squirrel after waiting patiently in the Squirrel Hide!
