A recent survey of the Castle's condition on behalf of the Trust found that there has been remarkably little change in recent decades: see Caisteal Tioram Condition Report September 2014. There is considerable overgrowth of brambles and nettles in the courtyard, and some vegetation, including ivy and tree seedlings, on some walls, but where photographic comparisons have beee made, no structural stone has moved since 1997. Indeed, the same is true for such photographs as are available from RCAHMS going back to 1926.

Thus the castle is no more dangerous to visit than in the years up to its closure in 1998, when it was freely visited by many thousands. There was a stonefall on the outside of the northwest curtain wall of the castle, which led Highland Council to issue a Dangerous Buildings Notice, but this was repaired by the owner more than 10 years ago.

The Trust is continuing to press Highland Council to facilitate full access, which it believes should have been restored as soon as the repairs were carried out.
