Perfect for luxury house party stays, Aldourie Castle resides on a private Scottish Highlands Estate just metres from the southern shoreline of famous Loch Ness. Whether for a multi-generational family holiday or to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary, guests can take over the only habitable Castle on Loch Ness as their own home fully serviced and staffed.
With a unique and welcoming atmosphere the Castle is ideal for small groups but can accommodate up to 24 guests. Aldourie sits in a world of its own cocooned by enchanting woodland and magnificent Highland landscapes yet is only 30 minutes from the airport. Activities and country sports can be organised from shooting and stalking to cycling, walking and golfing.
The only habitable castle on Loch Ness, Grade A-listed Aldourie dates back to 1626 when it was a mansion house but came to prominence in the Victorian era when the Fraser-Tytler family transformed it into an outstanding example of a Scottish Baronial castle, adding numerous turrets and towers. The Castle underwent a £10 million restoration in the early 2000s, when care was taken to restore original features, maintain its unique character and make it fit for luxury house parties of today.
Hire the Castle
Aldourie is available for guests to take over as their own home for a weekend, a week or longer. It can be hired exclusively for a variety of events and celebrations ranging from family gatherings, special birthdays, social or sporting house parties, small, intimate weddings or for a corporate event. Aldourie Castle and Estate with its extensive grounds, convenient location, excellent hospitality and sumptuous accommodation, makes a perfect choice for your exclusive Scottish Highland venue.
Things to do
The surrounding 500 acre estate offers numerous walks and trails through woodland and along the Loch Ness, as well as a private pier for access by boat or trips on Loch Ness. Aldourie is an adventure playground making the private property with grounds ideal for multi generational holidays. Children will have hours of fun in the man-made tree house, be spooked in the old family graveyard and have a whale of a time zorbing or hunting for Nessie on Loch Ness. Land or water based recreational activities can be organised and helicopter access to the Castle can also be arranged.
A fairytale castle on the banks of Loch Ness, Aldourie has already become a much sought after property for really special house parties, celebrations and events.
An absolutely wonderful stay … 32 friends and family gathered for an extraordinary holiday. All the staff made our week perfect in every way. We made memories that will last a lifetime and we can’t thank you enough. It was magical!
