Christmas and New Year at Lavish Highland Retreat, Aldourie Castle
Nestling on the quiet southern shore of Loch Ness, only 6 miles from Inverness, lays Aldourie Castle Estate. Set within 500 acres of woodland and gardens, this privately owned castle can be yours to enjoy, exclusively from Abercrombie & Kent this Christmas and New Year.
Christmas is a perfect time to relax in the company of friends and family and there is no better place, or style to do so in, than at Aldourie in Scotland. With many activities arranged by the team at the Castle, from clay pigeon shooting to distillery tours, the options are almost endless, or simply relax in the opulent rooms and indulge in a little festive spirit. You could even see the New Year in style with a private firework display and ceilidh with Scottish dancing.
Aldourie Castle is the only habitable Castle on the shores of Loch Ness. It has occupied the site since 1626 and has fairy tale grandeur with a winding, tree-lined drive, turrets, towers, nooks and crannies a-plenty. The Castle has been beautifully restored from the wine cellar to the top of the spires to create a luxurious yet intimate home and the attention to its heritage is matched by the quality and comfort of the furnishings. Outdoors, the formal gardens and woodland, as well as the original kitchen gardens with splendid historic greenhouses, have been restored to the splendour of their 19th century heyday.
Notable rooms in the Castle include the Red Drawing Room with its antique family portraits, roaring fireplace and original gold-leafed crown moulding and the Library, with rich, cosy fabrics and dark wood bookcases. The castle has 13 double bedrooms, designed with their own, individual character.
Dining is a unique experience at the Castle: from the full Scottish Breakfast, to a Christmas banquet in the Great Hall. All menus are tailored to suit the party’s requirements, with a Scottish influence, and prepared by the Castle’s Chef. The wine cellar provides a full range of fine beverages.
The team of staff is always discretely on hand. They will attend to the service of all meals and refreshments, housekeeping and concierge services, and anything else to suit a stay at Aldourie.
There are numerous activities for you to enjoy at this castle near Inverness: clay pigeon shooting, archery, mini Highland Games, falconry experience, croquet, football, mountain biking, fishing on Loch Ness, boat trip on Loch Ness, beauty treatments, horse riding, dolphin watching, Scottish pursuits, golfing, shopping, distillery tours, Urquhart Castle, music and entertainment, Ceilidh Piper, Kilt/Sash Hire, Whisky Tasting, Highland Story Telling and many more.
