My wife and I had our honeymoon at Castle Stuart in 2004 (well before the golf and other general hype) and we have returned there several times since. It never disappoints. Exceptional ambiance, great service, fabulous location! I've visited over 90 countries around the world but Castle Stuart still remains a very special and unique experience. I cannot recommend it...

Castle Stuart is the quintessential castle of one's childhood imagination. We enjoyed 4 nights of our gracious hostess, Caroline Stuart's hospitality, in August, 2013. We chose the Macintosh Suite on the first level, as I harboured concerns about my ability to manage a great number of castle steps; it was the perfect choice for us. We loved our Jacobean style...

With just a bit of imagination, you could believe yourself in another century, while spending time at Castle Stuart. The hidden passages, the careful attention to detail and the cleverly hidden modern touches make this a delightful stay. Add to that friendly staff, a wonderful Scottish breakfast and miniature horses and you have an unforgettable vacation experience.

Castle Stuart is a great unique experieince; the rooms, decor, atmosphere, staff and lets not forget the food, all contribute to a special accommodation experieince and I say this having just returned from a trip which included...

My wife and I recently spent a night at Castle Stuart in Inverness. It was absolutely the most wonderful experience we have had in terms of vacation highlights. Caroline was fantastic and the entire staff was just amazing. Admittedly, we were a bit lucky in that there were only 2 couples staying at the Castle at the time. We had... More

This is a castle built in 1625, rebuilt about 40 years ago. It is one of the coolest places we've ever stayed - hidden doorways, drawing room, circular stairways winding your way up the turrets to your room - duck your head, some of the doorways are small, and pack light, there are no elevators. The staff was terrific and... More

Magnificent weekend at Castle Stuart in Inverness celebrating a friend's birthday. Caroline, Mrs M and staff were absolutely wonderful. Service superb. I felt honoured to enjoy Caroline's home and loved all the special little touches. Loved the drawing room, the dining room, home cooking, and Lala the shetland pony! Mrs M you are amazing - cooking breakfast at 7am, teaching... More

We spent one night at Castle Stuart and it was unforgettable. We arrived after dinner and spent the evening enjoying the living room and billiard room. Our room was lovely, and we loved the amenities - the castle book, mini bottles of wine, etc. The breakfast was one of the best we had in Scotland. All in all, sleeping in... More

This is our fourth stay at Castle Stuart & it is extra-special to us as it's where we were married 9 years ago. And, as ever, it didn't disappoint!
