Aldurie Castle is located on Strath Dore’s low lying rolling grounds, between Loch Ness’ southern shore and the steep side of the Glen leading up unto Drumashie Moor. Originally, starting life as a laird’s mansion house, Aldurie began its story in a time when terror reigned during the Highland clan system. As the hills around it transformed so did Aldurie itslef, only eventually achieving castle status in the 19th Century.
From the moment you arrive, Aldurie will relax and enchant you. Furnishings throughout the Castle are of the highest quality, with rich fabrics, elegant furniture and fine antiques. From the light and airy main hall to the rich ruby of the drawing room; from the magnificent dining room to the classical Laird’s room, Aldurie is a place where the cares of the world seem far, far away. Throughout the castle one can discover imaginative little decorative touches – sometimes practical, sometimes thoughtful, sometimes whimsical, yet always welcome. Equally appreciated are the finest cotton sheets, the thick, fluffy towels and the sense of generous hospitality. The head chef is expert at creating traditional Scottish cuisine using seasonal and local ingredients or can conjure up a menu of fresh, wholesome dishes for a more informal dining experience.
