History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Beside the castle is a range of outbuildings, most dating to the 18th century. These were once used by the castle but are now in use by the nearby farm and are not open to the public. Carsluith is not spectacular but is rather a very nice example of a small tower house of the sort that was so popular throughout Scotland from the 15th to the 17th centuries.
It won't take terribly long to visit, either, so there's no excuse not to stop!
