Gordon Castle and Cottages
We’re talking exclusive use castle with self-catering cottages in the grounds here. If you’ve been looking through the Chic Scotland website to any extent, you will have noticed that there are a lot of exclusive use castles to choose from, and most of them have luxury self-catering cottages within the estate. It's true – there are A LOT of beautiful castles in Scotland. Here at Chic Scotland we really, truly do only pick the best ones… these are the ones which have gone the extra mile in their attention to detail with their interior décoration, grounds and garden and of course, the service. Gordon Castle can certainly boast quality in all of these areas. It’s also a beautiful location to get married, but a majority of people who hire this exclusive castle are actually salmon fishers. Gordon Castle offers the ideal venue for a fishing holiday in the Scottish Highlands. They own and manage eight miles of double bank fly-fishing on the world renowned River Spey, one of the “big four” Scottish salmon rivers. The estate can help you organise a fishing holiday with ghillie support and fully catered or self-catering accommodation. When you're tired of fishing, you are not too far from some of the best whisky and gin distilleries in Scotland! Gordon Castle hosts exclusive use luxury accommodation for up to 18 people. There are 4 Gordon Castle Cottages, sleeping 20 in total which can be hired out for a family holiday or week away. The 4th cottage, Quarry Gardens, is a romantic escape for two, ideal for honeymooners. Gordon Castle also host the ‘official Highland Games’ of Scotland in May each year, which is quite a spectacle – particularly a full Highland Military Tattoo. It's listed as an event in the events section of this website. The Walled Garden has a lovely shop and café, and is also a fabulous space for an event. It also has it's own listing within the website.
