Description: Castle Toward Outdoor Education Centre
Castle Toward and its grounds have a unique atmosphere, so you may not be surprised to learn that the popular CBBC programme ‘The Raven’ has been filmed here for the last few years.
Sixty years and 300,000 people later, the castle (or ‘castellated mansion’ to be precise) which dates from 1820 has become something of a national treasure. Ask around. We guarantee you will know someone who has soaked in the Castle Toward magic or knows someone who has.
Surrounded by 150 acres of woodland (that’s over 80 Hampden Parks!) the castle sits on the southern tip of the Cowal Peninsula. Beaches and historic ruins are a stone’s throw away and from the castle grounds you can take in panoramic vistas of the Isles of Bute, Arran and Cumbrae.
What a great place for young people to explore and ponder the wonders of nature in a tranquil and safe environment, well away from the madding crowd.
