Been wanting to visit and it didn't disappoint. Not many castles are still privately owned so it's great to see one that is. In parts the castle is like having a private peek at the family. The art work is amazing and the pictures in the ladies toilets had me laughing! Sorry men none in yours..yet! The cafe was good... More

An absolutely superb setting. We like visiting a place that feels "lived in" and this certainly does. The gardens are first class, we enjoyed a walk along the river before heading back for a nice cup of tea and to use those "celebrated" toilets the guy that sold us our tickets to enter was so enthusiastic about. We were totally... More

It would have been 5 stars had it not been for the fact that this is not a dog friendly visitor attraction, which it states it is on the website. We wouldn't have taken the dog had we known we wouldn't be able to give him a proper walk. We would have loved to see more of the grounds, instead... More

BALLINDALLOCH CASTLE is enchanting and set in a beautiful, peaceful location. The castle is a home which always makes a wonderful different on historic houses. It is full of good taste and lovely artifacts, and very loved. The gardens are magnificent and kept beautifully tended. We also had lunch in the tea room, very good, tasty and good value for...

The castle is beautiful both inside and out, the grounds are lovely to walk in with a walled garden, borders at the side of the castle and a colourful Alpine garden. The riverside walk is tranquil and leafy. The toilets are fantastic, Cartoons on the wall and the sinks are set into marble work tops! Fresh, clean, THE most pleasant... More

This was a beautiful day out looking round this lovely castle. The family still live in the castle but it doesn't stop you seeing this great place. The grounds were lovely with nice flower borders and walks you can do. Don't forget to take a look at their rock gardens as well.

We found Ballindalloch Castle to be an exceptionally charming place to visit. It is obviously a cherished family home and visitors are made to feel very welcome. The gardens are magical and it is lovely to be able to stroll along the banks of the river Spey. There is so much to see, both in the Castle and in the... More
