Ballindalloch Castle in Scotlands Speyside is worth a visit if you are in the area. The sign posts to the entrance were not clear,leaving visitors confused. The cost of around £11 was enough,some concessions are applicable. The castle itself is lovely with an interesting history,it...More

This is no drafty, medieval castle. This is a glorious home the local Laird opens to the public as a piece of living history. The grounds are stunning and the coffee shop is cozy...More

Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions of your visit. You are correct, the Castle is neither draughty nor mediaeval, and the Macpherson-Grant family are very proud of their heritage, and work hard to maintain the Castle in good order. We like...More

Disappointed after reading other reviews. Walked round the castle which was brief and predictable. Not great for people with disabilities that restrict mobility as narrow stairs in places. The river walk was enjoyable and the other star of the visit were the toilets which were...More

We found the castle in very good conditions, this because the owners still live in there. They have wonderful bedrooms (each with a different theme-color), library and halls. What most remained us has been the story of the family well described with a great number...More

We drove out here from the Cairngorms national park area ...turned out to be such a lovely place to spend half the day easily. It's still the beautiful and historic home of the Macpherson Grant family. The interior of the castle is open to visitors...More
