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.
Good Morning all as most of the country enters its 2nd week into lockdown the team at Castle Roy want to wish you all the best.
Unfortunately we have taken the decision to close the gates, this is purely to allow the on site mower to do his job and to get him out of the mud. We apologise to those who were enjoying their daily release and may have visited and hope you understand.
Stay strong, stay safe, stay home 🙂
See you on the other side
MURDO and his team at the Castle 🐂
In this time of global turmoil, we know that we are still allowed outside.
Please note the castle grounds will remain open to visitors to walk about. The gate has been opened so there is nothing to have to open and no cross-contamination risk. Please come and enjoy a wee jaunt around what is possibly Scotland's oldest masonry fortification, have a wee blether with Murdo and Buster and enjoy the wonderful scenery.
The donations box is there, Murdo and Buster still need feeding! But, it is being disinfected twice a day, morning and evening in an effort to keep everyone safe, thank you 🙂
Please allow spaces between vehicles and respect the Social Distancing rules if you meet folk who are also enjoying a potter. Thank you 🙂
All the best and tours will be available on the 'other side' 😉 good luck and best wishes to you all from the Castle Roy Team 🙂
Its fun to see what children like about the castle. A 7 year old was left alone to wander with the tablet today, l hoped this would give us a true, kids eye view of the castle and this was the result. What a lovely part of the world we live in and its lovely that children are enjoying the history of it too 🙂
Had a wee play and attempted to make a transfer, this was my first attempt. I am thinking they would make cute wee coasters or similar, obviously on a bit of better wood, we need a spray to stop the brush strokes on the top coat and we need to reverse the image and try to work out how to put Castle Roy on it... thinking these may make a nice gift, what do you guys think? I know l need to practice and learn how to not rub off the edges, oops 🙂
