The Observation Deck

The Observation Room

Make your way to the top of the Castle and enjoy the stunning views over the Tay estuary from our observation room. It provides visitors with the opportunity to do a spot of dolphin-watching during the summer months! Ask at reception about borrowing binoculars, available with a modest cash deposit.

Bottlenose Dolphins can often be seen around the Castle and breakwater at Broughty Ferry Harbour. The grassy area around the Castle can be a good vantage point as the dolphins can sometimes pass quite closely.
