There is an on site cafe where you can enjoy refreshments after your walk. There's also the Cafe Rosaburn at the nearby Isle of Arran Heritage Museum which is also well worth a visit. Originally the site of a small school, the present group of buildings were a croft and smiddy, and include a farmhouse, cottage, bothy, milk house, laundry, stable, coach house and harness room. The interesting range of exhibits reflect the social history, archaeology and geology of the island. You can find the museum just to the south of the castle at a postcode of KA27 8DP.

Dog Walking

The castle grounds are a lovely place for a dog walk but please keep them on leads.
