This is indeed a really great castle to visit. The grounds are lovely too and you can walk by the water's side. It is a place that I could visit again which is unusual for me. I would definitely recommend this place.

We enjoyed our visit tremendously. Very warm welcome from the Lady Laird, and it really did feel like walking round a very special family home. The castle was very well cared for, and lovely fresh orchids and photographs complemented the beautiful furnishings. The gardens were beautiful, and we particularly enjoyed the riverside walk. We enjoyed a freshly made sandwich in... More

We were visiting distilleries and needed to give our livers a break. Ian, the owner of the Castleview B&B (which is great) recommended we give this place a try. I have to tell you, Ballindalloch Castle, was one of the BEST places we visited over the whole trip. The castle, the garden, everything. If I ever get back to Scotland,... More

The castle is still lived in by the family and it's a beautiful home. The rooms are warm and welcoming and the furniture and china are wonderful to see. Outside the gardens are amazing and... More

It's not often you get to go around a castle that is still someone's home. The gardens were beautiful particularly when the sun made a brief appearance. The daffodils along the riverside side walk were a welcome sight. And finding out about the salmon they were researching as we passed. A very pleasant morning.

We visited the new still being built distillery. What a delight to see passion over profit being put into action. The very best of luck. We will definitely be back when you are up and running later this year

This is a grand house with gardens that is still lived in. Self guided tour includes some of the still occupied spaces. Surprisingly good collection of 17th century Spanish art -not as well displayed as one would wish. Nice walled garden. We enjoyed our visit.
