travel united kingdom scotland castle of mey

The Castle of Mey is well known because it was the Scotish home of the Queen Mother.
It is located in Caithness on the north coast of Scotland about 6 miles west of John o'Groats.
We visited on a damp overcast day in May and toured the grounds, the castle, the gardens, and the animal center.
There is ample parking here next to the Visitor's Cener and there is a fee to enter the grounds.
