Dirleton castle in East Lothian has been around since the century, and is remarkably well preserved! Lots of rooms, stairways and passageways to explore as well as the world’s longest herbaceous border for the botanists and photographers in the family.
Remarkably intact rooms you can imagine royalty living in? Narrow staircases to explore? Wide grassy space for running around, picnics and even jousting? You bet! Linlithgow Palace is the perfect place for a family day out.
