If you are looking for something fun to do with the kids during the October holidays, our very own Dunnottar Castle should be on your list.

During the October holidays, the castle are offering free admission to children. Up to three children (3-16years) per paying adult can go free.

Custodian Jim Wands said: “We are hoping parents looking for something to do with their children can enjoy visiting the Castle and save a few pounds at the same time.

“If you remember visiting with your parent when you were young, why not give your own children the same experience? Or if you’ve never visited the castle, now’s the time when your children go free.”

The Castle is a highly popular tourist destination in the north east of Scotland, and two years ago came seventh in a worldwide competition looking for the Eighth Wonder of the World.

After more than five million votes worldwide, people chose Turismo Chile’s entry of Torres del Paine National Park as the 8th Wonder of the World.

The Castle is open from 10am until 5pm (or sunset, whichever is sooner), and has recently had new information boards installed.
