A fairy-tale, grade-A listed Highlands castle in a superior location, perched on the shores of Loch Ness, Northern Scotland. As the only habitable castle on the banks of Loch Ness and surrounded by spectacular countryside, guests can enjoy a truly unique and luxurious experience.
Much attention has been lavished on the grounds and gardens, restored to their 19th century glory. The long tree-lined drive and wide sweeping lawn that dips down the banks of the loch are perfect for picnics, and avid gardeners of every level will delight in the 500 acres of private land recently revitalised to its heyday authenticity in the form of four main areas.
Guests can explore immaculate formal gardens, take woodland walks and pick their own fruit and veg from the beautiful and brimming walled kitchen garden that offers a farm-to-table experience.
