... in the end worked well and it was almost a pity to emerge from the hills into the lowlands of Scotland but the drive to the Castle made up for it. The entrance to the castle was through an impressive gateway beside a foaming river, there was then a long single track drive through woods to the castle itself, with the caravan site being situated immediately outside the castle walls.
