Dunrobin Castle near Golspie on the North Coast 500 route

One of the popular castles to visit when you are travelling on the NC500. Unless you want to look inside the castle or gardens, you don't have to pay, just walk down the side of the castle to the beach. This is where this photo was taken from.
