When you think of family holidays what immediately springs to mind? Memories to conjure whenever you feel nostalgic? Time to yourself when you can daze and laze the days away with a good book trilogy? A place in which you can just be yourself and relax completely because nobody is judging? Being around those you love during a family holiday is one of the most precious things you can experience: complete freedom of spirit, private family jokes that go back years and years, fits of giggles when you reminisce over funny times – that seem funnier every time the story is retold.
Family time can feel almost magical in the sense that family holidays are a very personal time; personal to each of us, a moment in time that no one else will ever experience in exactly the way we each have, with the same group of people. Many people think that it doesn’t matter where you are as long as you’re with the people you want to be around. Being a luxury travel destination in one of the world’s most iconic and beautiful places, however, does give us a rather specific view on that.
Aldourie Castle is a place of wonderment, peace and contentment. Everything you could possibly want or need on a multi-generational family holiday is here or can be arranged for you in a matter of hours. Things happen with ease at this storybook Castle; teenage girls’ childhood fantasies of being a princess miraculously come to life through winding staircases, private turrets and luxurious surroundings.
Boredom is not an option at Aldourie; a holiday here is literally like a fairytale. Boys can live out their dreams taking in every sporting or adventure activity under the sun; being outdoors on the magnificent Loch Ness with use of acres of private land is most appealing to the young explorer. Even toddlers enjoy spending time gazing at sparkling ornaments in the Castle and running through the brightly coloured gardens on a sunny afternoon.
Mums and dads can relax after the hectic schedule of the busy working life for a few weeks of quiet and quality time together. Romantic beach walks beckon in the evening before dinner together with the family. Quality time with grandparents is also something which should never be overlooked; children crave the attention and being spoilt rotten for a while whilst parents are relieved of responsibility and duties, if only for an afternoon. And the bonus? Individual and enchanting bedrooms await everyone after each eventful or restful day.
A week long or month long stay at Aldourie Castle means that this Scottish luxury home is only lived in by you and your family. The warm welcome upon arrival at the Castle is far beyond that which you would receive at a hotel. An exclusive holiday hire property is naturally your own home for the duration of your stay and so making guests feel relaxed, comfortable and at ease is the first thing on our To Do list. The rest is directed by the needs and wants of our most welcome guests. Whenever you want to get away from it all, come to Aldourie; no matter the season the Castle offers something extra special and is probably the most authentic home from home you will ever experience.
