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 defence, into a grand baronial Scottish mansion.  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.


ACCOMMODATION

Sleeps 18 guests in 8 double or twin bedrooms and 2 further single bedrooms with 10 bathrooms.  Two good sized entertaining rooms and a billiards room.  There is a resident gourmet chef who looks after the guests using the very best local organic ingredients.


LOCATION

Approximately 75 minutes from both Aberdeen and Inverness airports by car and 1 mile from the local town of Fochabers.  The castle also has a helicopter landing site.


FEATURES

Gordon Castle Estate has 8 miles of double bank fly fishing on one of the best salmon rivers in Scotland, the River Spey.  The fishing is well supported by a ghillie and can be tailored to the guest’s specific requirements.  Stalking can be organised nearby and driven grouse shooting can be arranged on the estate.  Clay pigeon shooting and professional tuition can also be arranged.  Other exciting activities can also be done on nearby rivers or the Moray Firth such as sailing, white water rafting, kayaking and dolphin watching.  Gordon Castle also has a tennis court and large private gardens to enjoy.  For golf lovers there are several nearby golf courses including Cruden Bay.  There are also may Speyside distilleries well worth a visit.
