Castles


Within a short drive of your holiday home there is a fantastic selection of castles to visit, from old uninhabited ruins to historic homes that are still occupied by their owners.


One of the closest attractions is Urquhart Castle which overlooks Loch Ness, now a ruin but a much visited location throughout the year. Further to the north east you can visit Cawdor Castle, home to the Campbell Earls of Cawdor, a beautiful building that is hugely popular in the summer months.


Brodie Castle near Forres is the ancestral home of Clan Brodie now owned by the National Trust. It has an outstanding art collection and magnificent library.


Dunrobin Castle is home to the Dukes of Sutherland and could easily be the inspiration for a Disney castle with its clusters of French style pointed turrets. It has a magnificent setting on the seashore near Brora, about 1 hour's drive north of Inverness.
