Situated between Inverness and Nairn, Dalcross provides guests with superb modernised and comfortable accommodation.  The owners have retained the character and charm of this wonderful 17th Century Castle which stands amidst beautiful secluded landscaped gardens.

Dalcross Castle is a classic Scottish tower house complete with a beamed Great Hall and large fireplace, a stone spiral main staircase, a secret staircase, turret rooms, shot holes and arrow slits and leaded windows in the Sitting Room. Guests have the use of the beautifully landscaped gardens.

Brief History
Built by Simon, first Lord Lovat, in 1620 and held by the Lovat Frasers until 1703 Dalcross Castle then became the home of the Mackintosh Clan. In 1746 Dalcross was the rallying point for Cumberland’s troops who quelled the Jacobite uprising at the Battle of Culloden. The Laird’s wife raised her own troops in support of Bonnie Prince Charlie.

The present owner has brought accommodation standards into the 21st century whilst retaining the essence of the castle. Fine fabrics, subtle lighting and decoration have been carefully selected to enhance the castle’s character. Log fires crackle in the reception rooms and bedrooms have the benefit of gas fires and en-suite bathrooms. Excellent central heating and first quality appliances ensure that guests enjoy the historic atmosphere in the greatest of modern comfort.

The castle sleeps twelve guests in five large double bedrooms and one twin room.

Two further castle bedrooms are available if required (one superking and one zip and link (twin or superking) – both en suite bath and shower) by separate arrangement at an additional charge per room per night.

We say...

Dalcross Castle is a classic turreted Scottish castle dating back to 1620, steeped in history but brought right up to the twenty-first century in terms of comfort. It is ideal for a large party.

You say...

We LOVED Dalcross!! Thank you for making it possible! All rooms were beautiful and comfortable (common areas and bedrooms). The grounds were enjoyable to explore. The caterer suggested by you, Good Highland Food (Mike and Yvonne) provided excellent service above and beyond catering. All in all, we could not have been more pleased with our Scotland experience.
