Aldourie Castle


A perfect restored Fairytale castle on Loch Ness. Available to hire exclusively. Beautiful self-catered holiday cottages also available for rental. Scotland is jam, packed crammed with castles!! But what I love is finding out about all of the ways each castle is completely unique. They are owned differently, ran differently and these days have a multitude of different uses in order to attract people through their gates and over their moats. It’s actually very exciting to see what is on offer here in Scotland. So far I’ve seen everything from Archery to Zorbing and LOTS inbetween…. If a castle is beautifully refurbished inside then the perfect use is very obviously for weddings, incentive travel, corporate retreats and family celebrations. Aldourie is one of THE best castles in Scotland for this purpose. You just have to gaze through their luscious Instagram and Pinterest accounts at their exquisite photos to see how glorious it all is. You may well be now thinking, well… I’m not getting married, I can only drool and dream of staying there …. however… I don’t think people should get put off or intimidated by the idea of hiring a castle. It may not be as out of your reach as you might think – especially if you call up and speak to them about dates out of season and get a large group of family and friends together who can all contribute to the hire fee. Alternatively, often these castles have annual specials where you can come and stay as a couple for a set rate. It really is worth phoning and enquiring. Aldourie is a true fairytale castle - and the décor is traditional but perfect, where clearly no expense has been spared. It’s not old fashioned in a dowdy, tired way but has a perfect, timeless, glamorous look. Aldourie Castle was transformed in the early naughties to recreate its magnificence back in its 19th Century heyday. It has a Moat! Need I go any further….. Even if the concept of hiring a castle still daunts you… you can still get a piece of the action by hiring a beautiful estate home in the grounds. The concept of the self-catering cottage on the estate of a grand castle is going to be a BIG thing. Or should be a big thing. The benefits are endless… access to the beautiful grounds of the estate, the same attention to detail in the castle is usually extended to the décor in the estate homes, the cosy closeness of a smaller home, holiday and history in one, unlock your children’s imaginations and let them run free... list goes on. Aldourie have a very fabulous blog with lots of info and reasons to stay there. They are social media savvy and have a great Pinterest and Instagram account too, where you can find plenty of inspiration and see for yourself why it should be on your bucket list.
