This is mainly for the locals as the place didn't look like it was well maintained and they have left it as it is. Good job on the various explanatory boards to give visitors some context and history. Felt this place was over-hyped for tourism. It's affordable and a pleasant way to spend an evening.

Majestic yet mysterious place and well preserved in most part. Every room has information for visitors to be able to imagine the family and their activities. Good spots for photographs

Going up on the roof to see the isolation of location and how the wife felt over 150 years ago surrounded by jungle

Nice historical place once in a middle of a thick jungle. William Kellie Smith 1870-1926 did not managed to complete. Still stands tall as a landmark.

Didn’t enter the place. The entry ticket was RM5, but was stopped just at the entrance because I was carrying a mirrorless camera. The staff insisted that I have to pay RM50 (10x the ticket price) simply for the camera. We requested to take back the ticket, but the staff refused. We left the place without visiting.

Keep your camera in bag before entering the place. I think it’s ridiculous for the additional charge. I didn’t carry tripod or other camera equipment other than a small Fujifilm camera. There is no photography restriction and everyone taking photos there, I don’t see the logic for the charge.

Great to see improvements made vs few years back. Good to know some of the history from the original Scottish owner to now. Love the architecture and views. Recommend for every type of visitors, and its very near to Ipoh. This are was also used to film 'Anna and The King' before.

Quite an interesting castle nestled amids palm oil trees, in the tropics.
Entry RM 5 for Malaysian with MyKad shown, twice for none citizens. RM for parking.
Ambling through the hallways and rooms, experience the owners abode, such history in this place. Get on the roof for some great panoramic view.
Decently maintained, though some repairs rather shoddy carpentery skills.
Quite a good place for some scenic photography.

I don't like supporting places that charges extra to foreigners and this isn't even worth the local $

We enjoyed to visit this kind of historical place during the British colonisation in Malaya Era. That Scottish Engineer was my kind of motivation as I studied in Civil Engineering.
The position of Wine Cellar, Bedrooms and Guest Rooms are pretty fascinating in the way of 1900s' architectural layout.
The only we encountered some unpleasant vandalism on the walls.
Overall it is quite worth to visit that place.
