A lovely little castle with a big heart. Excellent tour guide and helpful staff. Not for those who find stairs tricky. Multiple floors of atmospheric tower/castle rooms decorated with tartan a-plenty and exquisite 17th century plaster ceilings. The stories told are engaging and the whole castle is full to bursting with the belonging of the Forbes Family. Probably our favourite NTS property in Aberdeenshire.

Arrived here just in time for a tour of the interior. Our guide Evelyn? was excellent. She was informative and so interesting. It wasn’t a lecture, just a friendly talk. The castle is stunning from the outside and equally as good inside.

Arrived in time for opening on the way back home from our holiday only to see it was closed due to illness. Had a wander and took some photos anyway and will visit next year when it reopens. There were a few staff arriving as we left so not sure why it was closed. Perhaps instead of guided tours, self led tours like Crathes would be better staffing wise

No pre-booking allowed, so after one hour drive, arrived at Craigievar Castle at 1230 Sunday 19/9/21. 1245 was offered 1545 admission. 3 hour wait with no walled garden or cafe? Declined. Complained via NTS website 19/9/21: no reply. 10/10/21 emailed NT Scotland: staff member of Craigievar who'd offered 3 hour wait replied 10/10/21 justifying his own position & attaching NTS Covid ponderings. Unhelpful!

NTS needs to consider:
Waste of time, petrol & damage to planet by average 2-hour round trip & no admittance
£3.00 parking charge for unlikely admittance to castle.
6 other NTS properties we visited during same 11-day holiday have similar issues, but were welcoming & readily accessible, particularly helpful for disabilities.

Dont bother going unless you have the time to show up at 1030 and then to come back later that day. We understand Covid means reduced numbers but every other attraction we have visited (large or small) has dealt super well with it, this attraction is poor. We wasted £3 on 10 mins in the car park, only to be told nothing was available that today and to come back tomorrow. All issues could be resolved with online booking or at least a sign on the road to say "Full".

This is a National Trust property that says you CAN'T book but works on a first come first serve basis which turns out not to be true.
We arrived there at 12.00 on a Saturday (because it only opens a few days a week).
We were told there were no spaces left (although they were open until 4). We asked him when they were next open and he said the Sunday.
So we went back the next day and arrived at 10.30am, as soon as they opened.
We were greeted by the same man as the day before who said there were no spaces until 12.30!
When we asked how this was possible if you can't book he didn't really have a decent answer. Then the people behind us said they had been given a time slot for that day as they had turned up the day before and not been able to get in either.
We asked why he had not suggested that to us the day before but again got no reasonable answer. He did tell us that some of the people in the cottages on the estate had already booked, which is fair enough but there are only three cottages there.
We could have paid £3 parking each day for no reason although luckily we are NT members. We have been to numerous NT properties with no problems.

You have to book a slot to visit,we were very lucky and arrived early,getting the first slot. We loved the personal tour,the guides chatted for about 10 minutes,telling us wonderful history tales and then we were shown to the next area where another guide was waiting for us. The castle was beautiful and unique and the staff were extremely informative .

Extremely disappointing visit. We drove over an hour to get to Craigievar, paid the obligatory £3 parking to be told by a particularly unhelpful member of staff when we arrived at the house, that they were not accepting any further visitors for the day...it was shortly before 1.30 when we arrived and the castle closed at 4pm. He suggested we arrived for 10am the following day when the castle reopened in the hope we'd get in. It is not possible to book in advance and entry is on a first come, first served basis. He suggested people had been waiting for over 2 hours to gain access.

Other than the castle and grounds, there are no other facilities i.e. cafe to while away the time. Needless to say, we came away feeling annoyed.

On the whole, we felt the situation was mismanaged. Loads of people arrived after us, paid their parking and will have found out shortly after they couldn't gain access. Even if a notice had been put at the paying machine that entry to the castle was closed it would allow people to make their decision before paying mandatory parking charges. We hung around for about 20 mins letting people know they couldn't get in before paying parking while we figured out our new plan.

Come in Craigievar, get your act together. Sadly you've blotted your card with us. We won't be back.

While we appreciate your disappointment at not being able to get into the castle I hope that all our visitors appreciate that owing to the layout of the castle and in order to follow Covid-19 guidelines, we can only take family groups / bubbles at 10 minute intervals thus keeping our visitors and staff as safe as possible. This limits the total number of time-slots and therefore groups / bubbles we can admit to the castle in the course of a day. Depending on the number of visitors the wait for the next available time-slot can vary from a few minutes to hours; also there is no way we can predict the demand from hour to hour or day to day. On the day in question the wait had varied from 45 minutes first thing in the morning, to 5 minutes around midday and then over a 20 minute period all the remaining time-slots had been taken on the 'first-come, first-served' basis that we, and many other NTS properties, operate. We don't offer a pre-booking system owing to the fact that when we have operated on in the past we have suffered from people not showing up at their pre-booked time and the 'knock-on' effect that has had. We hope that next year we will be able return to a more normal way of welcoming our visitors to this historic castle.

This is a National Trust property so if you are not a member then this can be a pricey visit Adult £14.50. Saying that we still enjoyed our visit. You enter the castle at 10 minute intervals to ensure social distancing. Guides in soon rooms to explain the history of the castle which was nice. A little hard to find but if you are in the area well worth a visit.
