Great Visit
May 2021
This was the second day that the Castle was open - all staff were so pleased to see us and very welcoming - they had been working very hard to get the Castle back up to standard after closure everything was immaculate. Will be back

Highly recommended
May 2021 • Couples
After a wonderful drive up the West Coast of Scotland we visited the magnificent Inveraray Castle. We spent approximately 2 hours exploring the castle and it’s fantastic gardens. The rooms inside are well laid out with some interesting displays on the history of the castle, the various Clan Csmpbell chiefs and the connection to the Royal Family through Princess Louise. Great gift shop on-site. Unlike most Scottish gift shops which have the usual range of tartan, whisky and soap gifts this one had souvenirs of the actual place we visited. Highly recommend a visit if your holidaying in the West Coast of Scotland.

Thank you! It sounds like you had quite the trip to Inveraray - you really can spend the whole day here. The castle layout has been changed slightly due to COVID, but we're so glad to hear that this didn't have a negative impact on your experience. Thanks again.

Interesting castle in a spectacular setting
May 2021
Visited on a day trip with my wife. Beautiful late spring early summer weather showing off the different rhododendron colours in the gardens.
The castle rooms on view are not numerous but have many interesting historic features.
Guide staff were helpful and well informed. Can recommend the tearoom as well.

Lovely house and beautiful gardens
Jun. 2021
Stopped at Inverary on a trip up to Skye. Took time out to visit the castle and we were not disappointed.
The grounds are lovely and the gardens were in full flower. The house was interesting and full of interesting displays and facts.

Fabulous
May 2021
We visited on the first day of opening for the summer season. We had an amazing day, the Castle has out shone any we have been to before, the gardens are so well laid out with an air of peace and tranquillity x well done to the gardeners. The bluebells were amazing like a blue sea. We loved it so much we will be back this season and hopefully if it’s still open in the Autumn.
We walked down to the river also the bridge is stunning or at least I think so, I have a thing for bridges.
There is also a few walks up the wooded area which we just didn’t have time to do. There will definitely be a next time.
