The castle itself was very interesting and well looked after. The views from the castle were fantastic. The only downside is something that cannot be helped due to the castkes location, and that is the number of stairs needed to reach it! Definatrly nitcsuitable for pushchairs or the disabled-we had to stop half way when we wete leaving!
The location of this castle is phenomenal! You walk down quite a few stairs to beach level then you climb stairs up to the castle that is on its own cliff. The views from this castle are amazing!! If you are up for a bit of a workout, this castle is a must while in Scotland! It is not super... 更多
Anyone visiting the north-east of Scotland should take the time to visit Dunnottar. The very first view of this ancient fortress is stunning and as you follow the path down (and the UP!) into the castle you really can feel the atmosphere of power that this place must have generated in its hey-day. And then there's the eerie stillness of... 更多
Walking along the path from the car park provides some spectacular views of the Castle and you may want to stop right there when you see the number of steep steps down and up to the Castle! Going down is not so bad, but remember "what goes down has to come up"! The effort is worthwhile though and as you... 更多
A lovely ruined castle next to the sea. You walk down steps and then up more steps to get onto/into the castle grounds. Really exposed as it holds a great vantage point next to the sea. We had a lovely visit, the weather was warm but really windy. In fact, if the wind gets up too much they stop people... 更多
We didn't realise how big this attraction is! From the top of the cliffs you can see the lovely views. A lot of quite steep steps going down and up to the castle could prove to be quite tricky to elderly or the not so mobile. The stones beach at the bottom of the steps gives a good rest point... 更多
The setting is amazing. Let the wind gently envelop you as you feast your eyes on the ruins of yesteryear. An amazing site with great photo opportunities. Always enjoy the walk - breath taking.
This place is a must see for anyone that likes places of interest such as castles or coastal walks, its completely free to view the castle from the cliff and has a lovely flat grassed area perfect for picnics, to go in the castle there is a small fee but its well worth it. From the cliffs the view is... 更多
The coastline around the castle is nothing short of stunning. Steep cliffs leading down to a beautiful beach, with the castle ruins overlooking the whole thing. The history of the castle is hugely interesting - far more so than I'd imagined it would be in terms of its importance to Scottish history. I would very strongly recommend a visit here,... 更多
I absolutely loved this castle, it's picturesque as well as a great historical story. I was able to step back in time and see how life would have been.
Living ,to far from here I never tire of a good walk around the grounds. Be prepared for lots and lots of steps. Let your imagination go wild as you step through some of the ruins.
A fantastic advert for Scotland. Picture postcard scenery. There is a charge to enter but if you are on a tight budget you get a great feel from being near the castle with views from the nearby clifftops. Take your camera...
We parked the car in Stonehaven and then wearing good walking shoes did the 3km walk. The coastal views were wonderful as was the approach to Dunnottar. The castle itself is basically a ruin; okay but nothing great. Then we walked back and I had an excellent fish and chips while my wife had a wonderful tomato and basil soup... 更多
