  • Beautiful location with a tour of the home of the Argyle Clan chief. Great displays and history and wonderful gardens to relax in. 
  • Wanted to see the location of the Downton Abby and went. Than small note is Castle. Inside the entrance hall's new like recent repainting, not a scratch. As we saw in the Downton Abby sword and armor. Became a dance floor in the next room (forgot the name), show in the impression wallpaper, old, old-fashioned, historic castle was femininity. Entrance in the program was used as the entrance is opposite the entrance is now in the entrance. Was taken by from the garden. So imagine the staff. Inside the circular room is increasingly exhibited old Japan Imari. Café in the basement was a goodish. I wonder where is the under the bridge were smoking rose? Thought and prominence in the wine laid back good.

  • 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!
