Access

What will be open during your visit

All areas open, except the upper levels of the tower house.

Carers tickets

In line with best practice in the visitor attractions industry and as advised by Capability Scotland, visitors with disabilities are treated on an equal basis with all other visitors and entry is charged at the appropriate admission category rate - Adult/Concession/Child. Proof of disability is not required.

We recognise that some disabled visitors may need help to visit our sites and we offer free entry for accompanying carers, these can be added when making your booking. Please note this is limited to two carers per transaction.

Parking

The closest parking to the Castle is in the Brewlands car park, 500m from the Castle and is suitable only for cars as access is up a steep single-track road (with passing places) with a gradient of approximately 1:10. The car park surface is tarmac on a slight slope.

Motorhomes and other larger vehicles should park in the public Quarry Car Park and walk to the site. Please note that due to this route being the main pedestrian route to the castle that there is no public vehicle access beyond Brewlands car park and no public parking or drop off point at the Castle.

Due to the natural terrain the route is not suitable for visitors with limited mobility.

Approach to site

The Castle is 500m from the Brewlands car park along a tarmac surface. The path passes through a latched metal pedestrian gate at the top of the car park. This is followed by a steep gradient of around 1:8. The footpath then crosses over a narrow wooden footbridge with steps either end and handrails on both sides. The bridge is not suitable for wheelchairs or wide buggies/pushchairs e.g. side-by-side. The surface on the Castle-side of the footbridge is briefly very uneven and rocky before reverting to tarmac. The remainder of the approach is undulating tarmac.

Visitor centre

Entry to the very small shop is up two wooden steps (no handrail).

Monument

The courtyard has very uneven cobbles.

The cellar floor of the tower, which has an interpretation display, is reached via a straight timber stair of 15 steps (with handrail).

Upper levels are currently closed.

Light levels can be very low in winter.

Grounds

A grass terrace in front of the castle offers superb views of the landscape. Access to the terrace is via cobbled steps (no handrail).
