To help make the visit a bit more fun for children, pick up one of the quiz sheets at the entrance to the castle.

They will have to look very closely at the exhibitions to find the answers to the questions, which should keep them entertained while the grown-ups take the chance to read the information on the displays.

If you've been to any of the other properties in the Clackmannanshire Tower Trail, it will be interesting for children to compare and contrast the different styles of building.

Although the castle’s location in a housing estate does not lend itself to picnics (and there is no cafe on site), Menstrie is a pretty little village worth exploring in its own right, with a couple of suitable places to refuel.
