Sitting on the shores of Loch Creran, Barcaldine Castle is one of few ancient structures in Scotland that welcomes visitors to stay amongst its historic halls. The 4-star guesthouse enjoys a prime location just 9 miles north of Oban, and with stunning views of the snow-capped mountains of Glencoe during the spring or warm autumnal colors in the fall. Barcaldine Castle was first built under the rule of “Black” Duncan Campbell in 1609 before being restored in 1897. Today the stone-clad towers offer a unique romantic escape to the Argyll region in Scotland. Popular for intimate retreats and larger celebrations alike, Barcaldine Castle can even be reserved for private use with 6 inviting bedrooms and a Great Hall and Laird’s Parlour. Whatever the occasion, Barcaldine Castle promises you a memorable visit filled with history, relaxation, and breathtaking scenery.
