Lochleven Castle (HS)

Kinross

A boat will ferry you to one of Scotland's oldest castles, where Mary Queen of Scots spent a traumatic year. Probably built in the early 1300s, it was visited by Robert the Bruce during the Wars of Independence.

During Mary's captivity here, she miscarried twins and was forced to abdicate. You can see the room where she was probably held until her dramatic escape in 1568. Look out for the waterfowl from the ferry.

Opening Times

April to October, 10.00am to last outward sailing at 4.15pm. Last sailing in October is 3.15pm. Please contact site for sailing times or to book boat. Boat trip to the island is included in the admission price.
