Cardoness Castle

The architectural details inside the tower are of a high quality and there are good views over Fleet Bay from the battlements.

New scale model and exhibition.Some fine stone carvings in the great hall can be touched up one flight of stairs.

A steep path and six flights of steps lead to the monument. There is no access for those using wheelchairs and the castle is not recommended for visitors with walking or breathing difficulties.

At the top of the hill the ground levels out. Benches allow an opportunity to rest and enjoy the superb view and there is one interpretation board. A 30° ramp leads to the ground floor of the property but all staircases are spiral.
