Exclusive use guest June 2017

I just wanted to write and say how fantastic the meal was. I am vegetarian with a dairy intolerance and very rarely do I find myself so well catered for. Every course was immaculate and I found some of the meat eaters were envious of my meals, which is definitely a first!

Aldourie Castle is one of the best venues anyone could ever wish to go to. You are treated like royalty, from start to finish. Your every wish is granted and more. The Castle is fabulous inside and out. Every room is a dream and the scenery is breathtaking.
