Quite literally breath-taking! You feel the magnitude of the Castle’s historical significance as soon as you step through its doors. Preserved in time and closed off from the world until now....there’s a warmth and spirit to Barnbougle that’s hard to describe… simply magical

What a find!....Barnbougle Castle situated on the edge of the Forth with stunning views across the water with the luxurious surroundings makes for a truly memorable experience…

I am always amazed when I am introduced to true hidden gems. Recently I was invited to discover Barnbougle Castle standing proud on the waters edge of the Rosebery Estate. Having been reawakened after decades of being closed off to the outside world, I found myself very lucky to be one of few to be walking in the footsteps of the 5th Earl - what a formidable castle.
