Set about 5 miles outside Perth, well out in the country, this charming castle built by the Wemyss family is more than worth a visit. An interesting history, lots of nook and crannies to explore and some wonderful apple trees to boot.

Rhynd is very small not even a village! and you would be at least 1 hr from Edinburgh.
Edinburgh Airport is closest but accessing the location requires a car
Perth is the closest main centre for accommodation etc.
