Although not quite fully restored (this gives you an opportunity to see where your money is going), this "castle" has a lot going for it. Attractive and interesting Craigdarroch is an integral part of Victoria's history. Not an extremely large home, the family history upstairs should not be missed (puts Downton Abbey to shame). The staff is very friendly and informative and you have more time to enjoy your environment (they even allow competent pianists to play the piano upstairs), make sure to enjoy the view from the top.
