Behind the scenes information
Your driver/ guide will give you the history of the castle and details of Game of Thrones filming in the Great Hall and courtyard of the castle .
Take the audio tour of the castle narrated by Monty Python’s Terry Jones and Outlander's Jamie Fraser ( Sam Heughan ) .
The Great Hall is 20 metres by 8 metres , and 12 metres high to its timber roof, again a 19th-century replacement.The hall has no fireplace, and was presumably heated by a central fire, and ventilated by means of a louvre like the one in the modern roof. No details of the original roof construction are known, however, and the restoration is conjectural.Large windows light the hall, and stairs lead down to the three cellars on ground level.
The kitchen tower, virtually a tower house in its own right, is 17 metres (56 ft) by 8 metres (26 ft). One of the best-appointed castle kitchens in Scotland of its time , it has an oven and a 5.5-metre (18 ft) wide fireplace. A stair turret, added in 1581 and possibly replacing a timber stair, leads up from the lobby to two storeys of guest rooms. These include the “Royal Apartments”, a suite of two bedrooms plus an audience chamber, suitable for royal visitors.
