Worth a visit as the ruin is very interesting and the climb to the top is a must but don't do it if you're scared of heights.

Crookston castle is a great wee place to visit not much has changed in sixty years apart from the gated area around it and closed not like when I was young and we had picnics there in Sumer and slid down the hill in trays

This is a little visited castle but still very interesting. It is situated in a large social housing area which probably explains why it doesn't get a great deal of visitors. It is still very interesting and well kept.

This is a lovely spot to walk to for fresh air in any weather. Not much left to see, however a climb to the top is recommended for the views.

Great wee place, the bare walls of the place really give you a great sense of the history. Also, seriously good views from the top - only advice is that if you are bad with ladders do not bother coming here haha.

I’d imagine that you could take your dog into the grounds of Crookston Castle but unless you strapped him to your back there is no way you’d be able to take him to the top of the castle parapets.The access........if you... More
