This 18th Century Scottish castle is one of Scotland’s most historic houses. Inveraray Castle sits on the banks of Loch Fyne in Scotland where there has been a castle since the 1400’s. It is the ancestral home of the Duke’s of Argyll and has been renovated sumptuously by the current Duke and Duchess and offers guests the opportunity to enjoy pure 5 star luxury. The castle we see today took 43 years to build. Designed by Roger Morris and William Adam it is a fine example of a truly modern Baroque, Palladian and Gothic style castle. Dating from 1720 this unmistakably Scottish castle was the first of its size and type to be built in this remote part of Scotland.
This Scottish castle is situated on a large estate which offers wonderful walks and places to explore. Previous Dukes of Argyll have created several follies and other stone buildings that offer fantastic views over Loch Fyne and the surrounding area.
Only 90 minutes from Glasgow airport and 2 hours from Edinburgh, this stunning castle is tucked away on the West Coast in one of the most romantic and beautiful parts of Scotland. Overlooking the banks of Loch Fyne it offers spectacular scenery.
The architecture is unique, and when Inveraray Castle was built, it was way ahead of its time. Fascinating for historians and, in particular, lovers of Scottish history. There are four imposing, French influenced, conical spires surmounting the stone castellated towers.
Inveraray Castle offers wonderful holiday accommodation and is a perfect place to base yourself in order to enjoy some of the many local attractions. It is part of a superb sporting estate for fishing, shooting and stalking, all of which can be arranged for guests so that you can enjoy a truly wonderful Scottish castle vacation. There is hill walking and horse riding across the estate as well as sea fishing trips and visits to the Hebrides.
