Castle Hospitality

5 Star service in an exclusive hire property

Our intention is for you to become instantly seduced by Aldourie’s warmth and hospitality and feel that the entire Castle is your own home. Many a group booking come to the end of their private vacation here and because they are so relaxed and contented wish they could stay even longer.

The house manager and our castle hospitality team at Aldourie are always on hand to attend to your needs and requirements whilst you concentrate on simply enjoying your stay. We know the importance of quality family time, holidays and relaxation and are adept at providing a discreet service.

Should your party wish to partake in activities on the Scottish Estate or Loch Ness, our team can arrange any type of indoor or outdoor activity for your corporate group or luxury family holiday from archery in the parkland to exclusive helicopter rides. We can recommend endless places of interest or Highland tours and can organise transport for visits to neighbouring shooting estates or golf courses.

Exceptional dining experiences

The Michelin trained chef at Aldourie Castle may create a variety of menus depending on your requirements.  Choose from traditional Scottish cuisine for impressive, upscale events and fresh, wholesome dishes for a more informal dining experience. Aldourie Estate’s enviable location within the Scottish Highlands means we are able to select from the highest quality locally sourced food – from seasonal game and fish to artisan cheeses and, of course, some of the finest whisky in the world. We are proud to feature a recently revamped working kitchen garden on the Aldourie Estate. The picturesque walled garden provides a farm-to-table experience for Castle guests enabling them to pick their own fruit and vegetables for chef to cook.

Your celebration or event at Aldourie will be fully catered, serviced and staffed. The chefs, waiters, housekeepers and facilitators have achieved a reputation for unparalleled attention to detail. Nothing you ever ask for will be too much trouble. All food is complemented by delicious wines from the Aldourie cellar. View our sample menus below:
