Shouldn't really be reviewing this cos the less people know about the place the better. It'll not be accessible for too much longer (it's falling down) with safety concerns the way they are nowadays.

During a down day in Killin I found my self at the Ruins. We were the only people around. It was beautiful and very close to town. The Mr. and Mrs of the house are just out back.

The castle's most mysterious feature can be found just outside its north wall. Here there is a stone lined rectangular pit. This, almost certainly, served as a water storage tank to hold water running off the roof of the castle in the absence of a...More

We walked along the old railway path from Killin and made a small detour to finlarig Castel ruins. built in 1729 it had a weirdly gloomy atmosphere - something to do with the gallows tree and the beheading pit perhaps

These castle ruins are off the beaten path, but so worth it. They are on private property so they are not cared for by the Scottish government or any historical society, and are slowly being reclaimed by nature. You have the freedom to explore the...More

We heard about these ruins when exploring the area and were pleasantly surprised when we finally found them. It is not a manned attraction and literally a bunch of ruins in the forested area, which has its benefits because you have complete freedom to climb...More
