Al­durie Cas­tle,

The Ideal Home and Garden - - Ideal Getaway -

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.
