Easy to visit, near the Lochranza ferry port, and easy to walk up without needing to purchase tickets, or worry about big crowds.

Lochranza Castle is a lovely castle set in beautiful surroundings. Amazing to think that this place was built over 500 years ago. Quite how it was constructed then absolutely amazes me!

Very enjoyable visit. It’s free to go inside and there’s plenty of sights telling you what’s what. Definitely worth a visit.

Set in a scenic and tranquil location this ancient castle is worth a visit. The drive from Brodick is part of the experience as it takes you through stunning scenery.

The scenery, in which the castle is located, is definitely very nice. Visiting the inside of the building is a bit disappointing, as one can only access the basement and some parts of the 1st floor: It's a "hollow tooth". The information provided on different...More
