Not too far from home and spending a couple of nights in the secret coast of Argyllshire. Castle visit high spot. Interesting, informative and opulent. Found out a lot about Scotland's top aristocratic family.

In stunning sunshine we had a lovely stroll around the gardens and really enjoyed the experience of the grandeur in the castle.

One of the nicest castles we have both visited. Stunning inside and out. Cafe excellent and gardens outside are beautiful. Well worth the admission fee.

We stopped off here on our way to Oban as my husband is a Campbell and wanted our children to learn a bit about their Clan heritage. Well there was little to learn as you only get so see about 5 or 6 rooms. We then asked about a guided tour and were told that they are only conducted for... More

Inverary Castle, as a home has a very interesting history. At the time of our visit the Duke was in and some areas of the castle were typed off from the public. Which was understandable. The staff were very helpful and knowledgable. The castle coffee shop offered a reasonble range of foods and drinks at prices you would expect with... More

The castle looks magnificent and we thought we'd be able to spend most of the day there. It cost £10 pp and I can honestly say you only see about 6 or 7 rooms in half of the castle . The garden was sealed off to a very small area an we viewed the whole thing in less than an... More

The castle car park cost just £2 which was redeemed in the cafe as we spent over £5. We chose not to go in to the castle this time but to explore the grounds. We took the blue arrow waymarked path all the way to the lookout tower at the top of the hill (you can see it as you... More

Born a Campbell, I was looking forward to learning about the clan and sharing some history with my daughters. The castle is spectacular and HUGE from the outside and I was looking forward to exploring its many rooms, which I thought would be worth the £29 family ticket. As it was, only a fraction of the castle(and none of its... More

A very homely castle - made more so by the actual family being in and around the shop and cafe. Staff were also very friendly. You don't actually see much of the castle itself and we felt that the gardens were a bit of a let down but maybe just the wrong time of year.

A really good example of a "furnished" castle in good repair. It's actually occupied by the Duke and his family.
