We walked from Inveraray (about 10 minutes) up the driveway- a nice gentle stroll. The gardens are interesting, quite formal rose beds and peaceful woodland walk. Maybe slightly expensive (£10 each) for just the garden. Good little cafe in the castle basement with outside tables...More

The Castle was brimming full of information, the staff were friendly and helpful with a great deal of knowledge. The tea room was accommodating with gluten free options. The roses in the garden were in full bloom and the scent was beautiful.

My memory is that you paid as you entered the parking lot. Not sure if you could enter the grounds for a lower price or not. I will say the interior is amazing and worth the price!
