Brown tourist road-signs on local roads help show the way to Castle Menzies.  Here are some simple directions for those travelling by car and bicycle.

From the North and South: Turn off the A9 at Ballinluig onto the A827 and follow this road into Aberfeldy.  Go through Aberfeldy to the traffic lights junction where the A826 (to Crieff) meets the A827.  At this junction turn right onto the B846 (Taybridge Road).  Follow this road over the river (General Wade's bridge over the River Tay) and into Weem village.  Soon after you have left Weem village you will see Castle Menzies signs on the right. 

From the West:  Head to Killin and take the A827 along the north shore of Loch Tay towards Kenmore and Aberfeldy.  In the village of Fearnon (before Kenmore or Aberfeldy) you will see a brown tourist sign for Castle Menzies.  Take this left turn and follow the brown signs all the way to the Castle.

Disabled visitors

Castle Menzies, the Old Kirk of Weem and the Walled Garden are all ancient buildings and places which retain many of their original features.  As a result there is unfortunately very limited access for wheelchair users and there are steps and uneven floors throughout the properties.  The upper floors of the Castle may well be inaccessible for those who find stairs difficult.  On the ground floor we have a video area showing a detailed film of the Castle and its history, which allows those restricted to the ground floor to learn about the upper floors.

We have a disabled toilet.

No dogs except guide dogs are permitted within the Castle.

If you have any queries please contact the Castle Manager.

Health & Safety

Throughout the Castle there are steep stone steps, spiral staircases, other steps not immediately obvious, uneven surfaces and low doorways.  Please take great care.  Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. 

If you have any queries please contact the Castle Manager.
