  • We only viewed the grounds and the loch and loved meeting people, and their pets! While visiting we relaxed and felt nature from it!

  • We moored near here on our canal boat journey on the Union Canal. From a distance the palace looks lovely and we were keen to visit. However we found out it was closed and we were only able to walk...

  • Castle is partly restored at the moment. It's large and has many info boards. Lake surrounds the castle. Spectacular views and a lovely park to walk, run or kids to play. Lots of birds and ducks. Entry fee is really well priced. So worth taking family to view. So much history...very interesting.
  • Beautiful palace with loads of interesting history. Unfortunately currently under repair due to age. I can recommend walking around the Loch as the views are stunning and there’s a nice even path with benches scattered around.
