What a wonderful time we had at Forter Castle. Such an actioned-packed, memorable weekend for my husband's 60th with friends - quad biking, story-telling & whisky tasting, shooting day at the castle with the lovely Charles Cran-Crombie which was so much fun - he even brought his guitar and strummed a few songs in the Great Hall during lunch.

We stayed here with a group of friends, all in our 30's. Days were spent by the fire playing games, walking, archery and at a nearby pub. The stay was unlike any I'd been on before, it was magical and a long weekend I'll remember forever.

I had the best nights sleep in ages here. Fantastic shower in the bathroom. Kitchen facilities second to none, fully stocked with all essential tools. They organised a caters dinner for... More

Thank you very much for your review. We are very pleased that you had the chance to participate in an organised sports day at Forter. There are not many locations where you can throw cross bows, shoot guns, and fire arrows all in the garden. We do look forward to you returning again. Kind regards Forter Team More

Such an imposing building when you approach. It feels like returning to medieval times, however, the minute you open the door you realise that you are in the lap of luxury. The Great Hall is perfection, a huge fireplace, traditional yet stylish furniture. My favourite feature of the Castle is the stairwell, a spiral stone staircase up to the upper... More

What a magnificent location we truly felt relaxed and felt switched off from our usual busy lives. Forter castle is truly stunning , ideal for walking, cycling, shooting and for those keen golfers there are many scenic local courses.
