What a lovely property. The rooms are all special and the Great Room is a delight! I loved my stay here. Be sure to ask the innkeepers various details - I found out why one window in the Great Room is larger than the others, why two deer heads that used to hang by the fireplace were moved, about the...

A spectacular way to complete my first trip (certainly not my last) to Scotland by staying the night in a castle hundreds of years old! Liz and Ronnie were amazing hosts from start to finish, though the booking process and then alterations twice to our reservations, they made it work. The grounds were stunning, the stories were amazing, the rooms...

We stayed here for two nights. My husband booked it as a surprise. Where do I start? The room was gorgeous. The bed was huge and comfy. You felt like you melted into it when you went to bed. Our hosts were wonderful. They were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were amazing with everything freshly made and served at your...

Wonderful stay - Quaint ancestral home of the Campbell Clan and Black Duncan Campbell. Full disclosure: my wife is a Campbell. Room from top floor lovely (no "lift"- elevator in the US). Liz and Ronnie make this place EXTRA special. Castle only has 6 double rooms, so full occupancy is 12 guests. Quaint restored Great Hall for breakfast which was...

We stayed here on the last night of a trip showing two American friends around some of Scotland. We wanted to finish with something special and Barlcaldine Castle delivered in spades. Lovely authentic building offering fantastic bedrooms with excellent facilities and gorgeous views. Our two rooms had views over Loch Creran and the mountains beyond, one with a 17th century...

We stayed 1 night in the Lochnell room. We did not want to leave it! Stunning! We arrived in late afternoon and were glad we had brought some food with us so we didn't have to go out and miss any time at Barcaldine. The whole castle is furnished in gorgeous antiques and is very well done. Spotlessly clean. Bathrooms...

We loved it here. It was a castle with ghosts (maybe), a dungeon (really), great rooms and great breakfasts. Only downside was no possibility for dinner there, which would have been nice during a rainstorm. But good restaurants not far. Ronnie was warm and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

This castle was all what I expected and more. The staff very welcoming, the décor perfect for the castle setting, sumptuous and very clean. Our room was perfect, 4 poster bed, roll top bath and his and hers sinks. The views were spectacular. Our breakfast delicious. Really felt like a princess!

Absolutely amazing! We arrived late and were warmly welcomed by Ronnie. We were so lucky to have booked the Breadalbane Room. During our stay we were able to view other rooms and although they were nice and we would have been happy to have stayed in either of them after seeing our room there was no comparison. Breadalbane is very...
