Quaint town. Helpful staff. Had to visit a castle in Scotland. Why not a castle where 3 great shows filmed? Well done. Take audio tour.
Man, this is one of the greatest locations in Perth and Scotland. The enterely area is great. You have a lot of green spaces, a huge maze to have fun trying to exit, an old graveyard and a great castle. Also there you can see the small castle where the kings of Scotland were made. It's the only place I've seen a white peacock. Something you should know is that until 1st of April, you can't visit the interior of the castle as it's closed. Recommend it!
