This is an amazing place to stay for a big group! Normally the castle operates as a hotel, but we got it for an exclusive use for 6 couples during Christmas. Each couple got a separate bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, each offering its unique vibe. There is a large main hall with a long table for your celebration(s) that has a huge fireplace for cozy evenings. Adjacent is a small lounge with a small bar area where you can helpf yourself with a cocktail. The interriors are well maintained and you get immersed into the vibe of a couple of centuries ago. It was also decorated for Chirstmas (incl. a Christmas Tree) which was a nice addition. Before arriving we had expected stone cold castle inside and were prepared with thick sweaters and socks but the rooms were surprisingly warm. The castle is located in a walking distance from a loch surrouneded by farms with cows, chickens and turkeys. It is also a good base for exploring Scotland with an aprox. 1-hour drive to Glencoe or Glenfinnan. The kitchen was professionally equipped (because it is a hotel) and had all the cookware you may ever need for your cooking as well as enough tableware and cutlery for your large squad. Only thing to be aware of is that the kitchen is one floor below the main hall so you will need to do some leg excersice bringing plates up and down.

What a lovely stay booked this last minute. It's a luxury stay that combines history, we spent 1 night and couldn't fault it. The room is cosy and comfortable with a luxury touch on it.. maybe a magic mirror ? the lounge room/ dinning room is what we loved on our nights stay, we sat on the sofa at the log fire with our drinks in hand . The host and staff are amazing and made sure our stay that we were well looked after . Definitely would recommend and come back again, thanks for our wonderful stay.

Wonderful welcome on arrival. The castle is small but stunning. Stayed in the Caithness room. Very characterful - loved the turret room. Beautiful views. Enjoyed sitting by the open fire in the evening, and chatting to another couple of guests. Breakfast was enjoyable. Didn't see, or hear any spooks, but I'm sure they're about. Thoroughly recommend a night or two here. Take a bottle of wine, a book, and walking shoes.

The staff at the Castle was amazing. They did a fantastic job making us all feel at home while we were there including going above and beyond in several instances. The castle was beautiful and the views were unbelievable. Highly recommend for anyone looking to get away from it all but still treated like family.
