This Summer Season at Dunnottar was our busiest season ever, with over 87,000 visitors between April and August – up 12% from last year!

This included first-time visitors from as close as Stonehaven and as far as all over Europe, North America, Argentina, South Africa, Australia and Japan to name a few.

This is an amazing increase – we are flabbergasted and want to say a massive THANK YOU to all those who visited, whether for your first time or your fifth.

We are so grateful to have welcomed so many of you to Dunnottar so far, we love meeting everyone, answering all your questions and receiving your feedback.

As of 1st October, we entered our Winter Season and although we aim to open every day (weather permitting), the opening hours vary.

We now open at 10am with closing times changing as the sunsets get earlier.

Full details on our opening hours can be found under “Castle Entry Times” on our website, at the bottom of every page.

Wrap up warm everyone, we look forward to seeing you through the winter!
