Castle Stuart

Magnificently situated on the Moray Firth near Inverness, the 5 Star Castle Stuart is a sight to behold. A mere 7 miles from the heart of Inverness, and just 20 minutes drive from Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle, Castle Stuart is an ideally located base from which to explore the scenic and historic Highlands of Scotland. Fully restored and furnished in Jacobean elegance, you'll soon realise that this is no ordinary hotel. Walk the battlements with the ghost of Charles I before he lost his kingdom and his head, or with Bonnie Prince Charlie the night before his tragic defeat at nearby Culloden Moor. The view of the Moray Firth and mountains beyond from the battlements is literally priceless. Surrounded by such natural beauty and historical significance, it's impossible to leave Castle Stuart without being thoroughly enchanted!

Rooms & Amenities

Each of the eight guestrooms at Castle Stuart are named after the clans who fought and died for "Bonnie Prince Charlie" at Culloden, and are decorated in their individual tartans. Bathrooms are ensuite or adjoining. Throughout the house you'll find open fires, fresh flowers, old paintings, armour and historic relics, tartan carpeting and polished floors. Enter the portals of Castle Stuart and step back in time. You'll soon realise that this is no ordinary hotel. Please note that Castle Stuart is a 17th century Tower House with spiral stairs, and no elevators. For short stays, your hosts suggest that you arrange a manageable overnight bag prior to arrival, to avoid lugging large suitcases!
