The Castle Roy Trust has taken 25 years to secure the walls and make the area safe for visitors. We are ready for WEDDINGS and PERFORMANCES in the grounds with utilities on site and a large area flattened for marquees. The Bards Bowl and Panoramic Picnic Point allow for fun and games for the whole family.
As of summer 2019, there is still some building work continuing and we hope that soon the castle will be completely open.
At present, accompanied tours can be given on request.
****1000 signatures in the visitors book****
Congratulations to Neill being our 1000th signature in the book in 2019. Hopefully a nice little bonus to the trip for him and his wife 🙂 This does not include the visitors we see but miss catching and is probably only a smidgeon of the folk who stop by when no one is about, l found out there were at least 12 yesterday 🙂
****Open Doors Day*************** 21st and 22nd of September, Castle Roy will be open both days and will be enjoy fiddles, activities and visitors galore. Why not bring a picnic, enjoy a wander by the pond and squish in a tour of possibly the oldest standing masonary fortification in Scotland, remember the Abernethy Old Kirk, next door will be open and has a refreshments and wonderful home baking available 😀
Well hello folks, it has been a wee while since the animals had an update. Far too much other interesting stuff going on, wild flowers, events and summer sunsets 😉 anyway.
Poppy has officially retired from her duties at the castle, she does miss her regular visitors but she is fine, just feeling her age somewhat these days.
Its ok Murdo is not alone last year when Poppy was not well we aquired Buster, he has now arrived and stepped up to the companion role amazingly. Yes, he is sporting a mohican, with a fleece like that we couldnt resist the chance... was done way back at shearing, its amazing how long sheep spray lasts.. watch this space esp at Halloween 🎃
