Thank you for the review.

The grounds are well maintained and even on a rainy day a walk around them is worthwhile. The house is much lighter inside than expected with plenty of information available and helpful staff. Definitely not a mausoleum

A good destination and enjoyable but it badly needs some covered parking for car visitors with dogs to keep the car cool. The car park having very little natural shade. Something similar to that at House Of Bruar perhaps.

It was a wonderful visit to the Inveraray castle. The location of the castle is lovely, hospitality of the guides was warm. They kept my daughter engaged by giving her a list of secret objects to be found.

The museum section of the house is informative, interesting, & incredibly maintained for both historical accuracy and Scottish heritage. My wife's great-grandmother was a Campbell. The shop offered items of personal interest to each of us although my mother's family are Clan Kirkpatrick. The tearoom...More

Thanks for the review! Yes, Rob Roy's case of artefacts is quite something.

As Campbells ourselves it was great to visit this marvellous place. The miserable weather (on that day only) only served to brighten the experience. Wonderful displays throughout the castle of guns, swords etc, and beautifully lit. Great for us photographers.

The Castle & Gardens aren't open until 1st April. You can visit the outside of the Castle though and walk around the Estate.

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!
