Let Off Steam In Our Grounds

Learn about the historic and noble art of falconry or try your hand at archery. You don’t need to roam too far from the castle walls to create memories that will last a lifetime.

With eleven acres of private grounds on the doorstep, you may like to take a stroll while you’re staying at the castle. From a genteel wander to discover the private burial grounds of the Ramsay clan to delightful woodland walks where you’ll have a chance to spot roe deer and otters along the way, there’s plenty to explore from the doorstep.

Suitable for all ages and available to book individually or as part of a group, our falconry sessions are extremely popular and we recommend booking before your arrival.
