The Grounds

Private castle grounds in the Scottish Highlands

As if the delights of the Castle itself were not enough, the great outdoors of Aldourie Estate offer an equally spectacular appeal. Stay at Aldourie and the 500 acre Estate is yours in its entirety.

The wonderful gardens and woodland have been beautifully restored to the splendour of their 19th century heyday. Intricate, quaint and colourful with arbours, orangeries and bridges, the formal gardens are a delight.

The manicured lawns that slope gently down to Loch Ness itself are perfect for afternoon strolls and the overlooking terrace offers a peaceful haven to enjoy summer barbecues and garden parties.

Further into the grounds the leafy marina is a great place from which to take an adventure on Loch Ness and the woodland tree house is ideal for some serious Nessie spotting.

This unique Highland location lends itself as a paradise for walkers, cyclists, hunters, fishing enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. We have developed a local network of experts who can guide you through a vast range of activities and interests.

Whether you need the assistance of our expert team or prefer to do your own thing, we will ensure that on the Aldourie Castle Estate you experience the very best of Scottish hospitality.

The Scottish Aldourie grounds are also ideal for large outdoor public events such as country fairs, car rallies and product launches and the predominantly flat land is a great location for corporate use such as team building and staff activity days.

To enquire about private hire of the parkland for your event or as a filming location please contact the Estate Office on 01463 751309.
