If you want the chance to roam around a 16th-century castle freely, exploring all it has to offer, look no further than Castle Menzies. The highly rated visitor attraction was restored during the 20th century but is stripped back, so visitors get a feel for what the castle is really about. With every room open for guests to explore, you’ll get an idea of castle life back in the day in truly fascinating detail.
There’s also a walled garden on site that is well maintained and was once nationally renowned. It has been said that the gardens came about circa 1600, proving the whole area is steeped in history and is a progression through time.
Even if history doesn’t interest you the castle is in a beautiful area and is well worth visiting just for this reason.
Admission for an adult is priced at £6.50 with children under the age of 16 paying just £3. A concession ticket is £5.50, and you can buy a family ticket for £15. Group bookings are available on request, and a guided tour will be provided.
Castle Menzies is also available to hire for private functions, with weddings being the most popular type of hire. Wedding ceremonies usually take place in the main hall. The location really is ideal to celebrate such a special occasion.
The castle is best accessed from Kenmore by road, taking around 15 minutes. Car parking is available on site.
