Dunnottar Castle (Stonehaven) Reviews
Newest Review: ... in some kinds of severe weather the castle might becomes inaccessible as the waves might cover the path. The approach is impressive in itself, offering different views - there is also a path through a stile to the side and across a ravine to a headland opposite the castle which offers a great viewing point and a large area of grass for sitting on and admiring the view. Beaches in both coves are also accessible from the path. This surely must be one of the most spectacular locations in Scotland, possibly even in Europe. But Dunnottar is more than just a very dramatic ruin, a perfect setting for a Romantic ballad or a knightly epic (inc... more

Dunnottar castle presents one of the iconic images of Scotland: an extensive, picturesque ruin sitting on a rocky headland, its jagged cliffs jutting into into the tumbling sea below. Peter Irvine's cult(ish) guide ''Scotland The Best'' places Dunnottar high on the list of the 'best ruins' - with a tick (indicating 'among the best of its kind in Scotland'') - and it is, indeed, a spectacular place, worthy of its popularity and well worth visiting. Located on the east coast of Scotland, 50 miles north of Dundee and 20 miles south of Aberdeen, Dunnottar lies 2km from Stonehaven and is easily accessible by a fairly spectacular walk from town or it's ...

Stonehaven is a town situated on the North East coast of Scotland, around 13 miles south of Aberdeen. Traditionally, Stonehaven was a fishing town.

Stonehaven has, however, played its part in Scottish history throughout the ages. One of Stonehaven's main tourist attractions is Dunnottar Castle, famous throughout history for a number of reasons. The Scottish Crown Jewels were hidden here for many years, and as Cromwell came to find and destroy them, some local fisherwives snuck them out in a small boat and ... Read the complete review

Dunnottar Castle is a fabulous ruined clifftop castle, near Stonehaven (near Aberdeen). We drove up the Angus coastal route, which is stunning itself. When you get to the castle, there is a small area to park your car - in the summer, you will probably end up parking on the verge of the road, as it can get quite busy. From the car park, you can see the castle on the clifftop, it's stunning. You will walk about a mile to the castle, past some fields and down some cliff steps, before reaching the base of the cliff that the castle is built on. Then it's up some more steps to the castle itself. It is a ruined castel, so there's not a huge amount to see, although quite a bit . Read the complete review
