(4.1/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Home to the chief of the Campbell clan since the 16th century, Inveraray Castle still houses the 13th Duke's family on two floors. The rooms open to the public are furnished in the Neoclassical style and include glided ornamental detail on the walls and ceilings, chandeliers, and polished furnishings. The highlights are the tapestry room and the duke's coronation robes. The first floor houses a gallery chronicling the Cambell family history and the MacArthur Room, where a ghost is said to haunt the bed.

  • Found all aspects good. Enjoyed the friendliness, found it so much better than city-life due to great engagement. 
  • I always figured that I'd visit Scotland one day, but as I love to travel, my list is long and it wasn't at the top of my list, that is until Downton Abbey came along. And, how glad am I that it did. ...  more »

  • Truly enjoyed the journey back in time. This castle is absolutely fantastic. It is currently lived in, which makes it all that more impressive. When in Scotland, this is for sure a must visit, you will be glad that you did. The scenery around the castle is simply breathtaking. As with many of the castles, Inverary is kid friendly. The curators have done a great job of making an interactive game for kids (and the adults) to enjoy while walking room to room.
  • A fantastic mix of the history and contemporary life of the Scottish clan. The family lives in one wing and made another wing abailable to visitors. Great interiors, dont miss the kitchen in the basement. Good access. A perfect place for a day trip from Glasgow.
  • Excellent castle to visit. Impressive displays with considerable access while still being a family home. Good value entry price.Definitely worth a visit.
  • A proper castle in a lovely setting. Friendly staff and no limit on time touring the castle which is well looked after and very interesting.
  • Don't forget to walk up to the folly!
