The castle is open again. We were able to walk through the entire castle. The history is very interesting and you can even walk through the mine and the counter mine. The only place closed right now is the great hall but you can view it quite alright from the outside. I think it's a beautiful castle and well worth the 9 quid it costs.
Now, currently the castle is closed due to falling masonry, but the visitor center is still open and free to get in. There is a gift shop and a walk through of the history of the castle and St Andrews cathedral. Also you can get closer to the castle as there is green space around it that is still accessible. Good to go to if you are in the area currently and want to visit. I hope to return once the castle is open again.
Very amazing castle ruins. This castle has about 450 year’s history, was a bishop palace and a fortress. For now, we can see the ruins, but it’s possible to imagine what the scale of this castle used to be like. One interesting place in castle is the bottle dungeon, which is really cramped, dark and damp. In terms of the reason why this dungeon is called “bottle dungeon”, I believe it’s because of the shape, like a hole dug deep into the ground, and the space at the bottom was larger, forming the shape of a bottle. It’s hard to imagine how the prisoners inside weren’t driven mad.
Little expensive to access the castle, £9.50 per adult, but we still found it worth it. There is still quite a lot of the castle left and there is quite a lot of information as you move around. Great views from the castle too.
Astounding historic castle friendly staff cheap prices wide range if products at the gift shop! I would recommend this place is mostly aimed for kids good place to take out your kids 😁 many people should see the historic Places in Scotland they are really beautiful 😍 great place 👍😀
