As you drive into the town of Inveraray a feeling of serenity takes hold. You cross a small stone bridge and to the right , Inveraray Castle! How majestic! When we parked the car we were greeted by a herd of “ Heiland coos”. I...More

Stunning inside and out. We stopped here on our bus tour and it was wonderful. The inside of the castle was beautifully decorated with artifacts and treasures from its rich history. Totally different from a castle ruin and more like a decorated museum, it reminded...More

Just an absolutely stunning building! The castle itself is kept in a really good condition, the staff are very friendly. The castle looks like something out of a fairy tale! Definitely worth a visit.

Inveraray Castle's open rooms were warm and inviting for such a grand structure. It felt a bit more personal than other castles that were restored to a set period due, no doubt, to the family ownership. There were cards with information for each room that...More

First off, the grounds are gorgeous, and the castle is stunning. However it's let down by not a lot of obvious information about the history or things in the castle. Maybe I've been spoiled by the likes of Edinburgh and Stirling, but there wasn't a...More

Hi SerenKimbo, We're sorry you didn't have the best trip to Inveraray Castle. The history of the Castle is limited in some ways because much of our archive is still in paper form. We do have an archivist, and she does her absolute best to...More

My memory is that you paid as you entered the parking lot. Not sure if you could enter the grounds for a lower price or not. I will say the interior is amazing and worth the price!
