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.
