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.
Look, what a fantastic gift to Castle Roy. An original painting and, not only that but postcards as well.
We are beginning to think about our next raffle so keep an eye out for what else might go into it?
And a huge thank you to Chris Godlington for setting us off on our collection

It has been a while now but it hasn't been a great year for any charities, has it?
We felt strongly that there were many charities out there fighting for people's lives and so took a back seat, but we are BACK!
So much work has been completed by our brilliant masons, Harper And Allan Masonry Ltd.
The Small Arch is now complete and the metal supports that Historic Environment Scotland wanted us to use instead of replacing the stones are in place in both areas.
The end is in sight, though we have had quite substantial additional costs due to the delay caused by the shutdown.
The Cairngorms Trust have kindly funded the remedial work to the masonry that was caused by this delay. Thank you so much! We would have been totally unable to look forward to opening next year without your help.
Now we are looking for funding for the other additional costs to groundwork, management, and archaeology that have arisen because so much of the year was lost. Then we can get on with what was planned, just after a season's delay!
