GORDON CASTLE

Speyside

Gordon Castle is beautifully positioned within a 500-acre highland sporting estate in Speyside. Owned by the same family since the 15th-century, it was transformed during the 18th century, by the 4th Duke of Gordon, from a Fortress which had been built for defense, into a grand baronial Scottish mansion.

AT A GLANCE

At the time it became known as the largest building in Scotland. Unfortunately, after some time, crippling debts forced the sale of the castle in 1938, after it had been use as an Auxiliary Hospital in the First World War to treat wounded soldiers when they returned from the trenches. However, after the Second World War, the grandson of the 7th Duke of Richmond managed to buy the castle back into the family and set about returning it to it’s former glory. Although now slightly more modest in size, it offers delightful accommodation in exceptional comfort with a wonderful team of staff to look after the needs of every guest and is one of the finest Scottish castles to rent available.
