  • loved that museum. We went there on a Monday and it wasn't too crowded. It was so interesting to walk and being able to read about the different rooms in the castle. It's beautifully presented and the architecture is great. The information is great for educational purposes and adults and kids can enjoy the facts and information given about the room and its content.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed this viewing from the past. Craigdarroch Castle is pretty well-known and is well organized as a tour. We went through the entire place and enjoyed the trip backwards. Worth a visit!
