Our audio guide features the voices of four time Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan, celebrated TV and movie actor Bill Paterson and Outlander’s Andrew Gowar. Let them take you on a journey and learn about the castle and the people and events that stand out most in it’s fascinating past.

You can hire an audio guide device in a range of languages from the ticket office, or pre-book online when you buy your tickets.
