The Larnach Castle is now owned by the Bakers family. It used to be owned by a Scotsman. It has an interesting history.
The garden area is a delight, similar to Edinburgh or English garden. A pleasant cafe, with reasonably-priced food is located at the castle's ballroom.
It is best to visit the castle on sunny, cloudless day. The castle has an astonishing view of the Dunedin coast.
