Experience: A tour of Menzies Castle - by night.

Tours of Castle Menzies have been conducted for sometime by the Castle Manager. Evening tours have been introduced to allow a more private and intimate Castle experience to be offered. The evening format has been developed over the last year and only recently been formalised as an Airbnb Experience.

Format:
We will meet at the front entrance of the Castle. From there we will follow the following four step format for the tour.

1. On entering the Castle we will go to the Medieval Kitchen, where introductions will be made, and the group will undertake a safety briefing wherein the guide will define responsibilities and safety precautions.
2. An Introduction to the Castle will be given that gives an insight into why and how the Castle has evolved and talk about notable events, people and stories associated with its colourful past. An overview will be given of the ongoing Castle and garden restoration by the Menzies Clan Society & the Menzies Charitable Trust.
3. We will tour 15 rooms including the medieval Kitchen, Guard Room, Pink Room, Green room, Clan Gregor Room, Bonny Prince Charlies Bedroom, The Chiefs quarters, projecting towers, and Lang Garratt
4. The group will return to the medieval kitchen where a closing address will be conducted, questions may be asked, and a good bye drink shared.

I am an Artisan, Designer, Interior Architect, half baked writer and former Military Engineering Officer (RE). I am also a native of Highland Perthshire.

A prodigal son, if you will. Returned, after twenty years in London.

Over the last 8 years I have supported my Father ( the Castle Manager) in the running of events and the ongoing restoration of the Castle; which is lovingly administered by the Menzies Charitable Trust and supported by the inspirational members of the Menzies Clan Society.

My passion is in sharing insights the Castle has imparted and by bringing my experience to bear in a personal appreciation of why the castle was established, how it has weathered turbulent times and what we may learn from the past. Lessons, about human nature, that may just help us reinterpret the present and realise our true worth and purpose

Great experience. This father and son team have a clear love of the castle, and a deep knowledge of the castle and how it has weathered the storms of Scottish clan history. It was lovely to see, smell and touch history. It was a lovely cold clear night outside and you could feel the protection of the sturdy old castle, and imagine all those characters from Scottish history sleeping, drinking and raiding in the same rooms!

We were very lucky to find ourselves in a small group with only one other couple, which made the experience feel like a personal tour. The castle is wonderful and well worth a visit anyway, but experiencing it at night was extra special. On the day we came, the floodlights weren't working by chance, but that actually added to the experience because it made it feel extra spooky (although I would have liked to see it lit up). Of course they have the lights on downstairs when you first go in, but then when you go upstairs its only the light of the candle being carried. They did turn on the lights for the big grand rooms that have been decorated well, so you do get to see them properly. Criag and his father are very knowlegable about the castle and the clan, and Scottish history in general. They painted a detailed picture of life in Scotland at the height of the clan system in the middle-ages. I would recommend it both to visitors and to Scottish people who want to learn more about their own history. We even got to handle some of the weapons which is a very rare experience. We were in there for well over the allotted two hours so it was very good value, especially as the evening ended with a dram of very fine whisky.

The tour of Castle Menzies is amazing!. The tour takes place after everyone else has left so you have the whole place to yourself. Craig your host, looks absolutely splendid in traditional attire and has a wealth of knowledge. You are guided through the castle as if you were a visitor in the seventeen hundreds and shown how you would have been received by the clan leader. Later you are shown how the castle evolved through the centuries and developed in to a bustling stately home before falling foul of dept and death duties. The castle has also played host to some very famous guests and residence. The castle team have done an amazing job at restoring the castle to its current condition, there is loads to see and Craig is on hand to answer questions. To cap the tour off you are presented with one of the best tasting whiskies I have ever tried, very easy on the pallet. Would highly recommend.

This tour was a really special experience, quite unlike any other tour I've ever had. I enjoyed that it was in the evening as it was getting dark, and the candlelight was really atmospheric. I loved hearing all the stories and thinking about how life would have been during that time. Craig had a great way of storytelling and I learnt a lot about the history of the area. I'd highly recommend this tour!
