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.

For those of you who are shopping online during 'Loch Doon', please remember to shop through Amazon Smile and donate to Castle Roy Trust, (https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/SC041335) or, go through easy fundraising, see below.
We would be grateful. There are so many calls on funding at the moment and this is a way to donate without any cost to you.
Our running costs are usually covered by passers by and of course, that has left us with zilch!
Many thanks 😀🙏
Murdo here... Well what can l say? Nobody comes to visit me these days and then poof they turn up. Nice l thought and then.... this happens!!!😲
I was a very good boy, my horns are so big now its not the easiest thing to get me into. However with lots of cuddles and persuasion l went in. 👍
I flew up into the air with all the grace of an elephant doing ballet and poof had a wee lie down. I got my tootsies done and are all good for another year then l got my big boy ear piercing, that l don't remember being on the cards before, but having lost one l am all now good again. The bonus of it having snowed only yesterday was no one came at my tummy with clippers hehe, phew👌
A massive thanks to Kenny Morgan the Cattle Hoof Trimmer who came all the way from Aboyne in the yucky weather to sort me out :).
Stay safe out there everyone and we will see you all again soon...
We have been lucky enough to have a donation of saplings from Morgan Sindall as a contribution to the community during the SSE work.
A trusty Trustee has potted them all up awaiting planting when work can get back underway. What a great addition they will be to the grounds along with our spectacular wildflowers.
Happy Mooday, sorry Mayday, everyone. Here is me having a good scratching from my favourite hooman bean. OK, she is the only one around right now and she provideth me with food, King Murdo, so she will have to do! Anyway, l just wanted to say a huge.
👋👌THANK YOU TO MY SPONSORS.👌👋
In this very uncertain time and with the castle being shut, l am unable to use my hairy charms to earn my keep! So thank you, so so much for continuing to sponsor me at this time of climate chaos. 🐂👏
Here's hoping everyone is safe and well and hopefully l will see you all soon enough. 🙂
