Create an itinerary including Inveraray Castle
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. Visit the castle's website to book a discounted ticket in advance.

  • We enjoyed learning the history of the castle and seeing all the beautiful furniture. As descendents of the Campbell's, it was of great interest to us.

  • Great castle with a very interesting history and lots to see! Definitely would recommend the castle and nearby town if in the area. Very beautiful with a wide history. Also some Downtown Abbey was filmed here if you are a fan. The outside garden/park is also superb with many old trees and plants from all over the world. Also the coffee place in the basement is cute with good quality products.
  • Excellent customer service... I'd driven past for years 'decided to finally visit, well presented grounds and walks, the castle has some unique items and displays... I'd recommend using any available discounts (the jail does a combined ticket option)
  • Such an amazing place in perfect location. Donna, one of the guides was so lovely. She was so very informative and enjoyed answering all our questions, so she gets a special thank you. Would definitely recommend this treasure in Scotland
  • We haven't been in the castle yet but have walked around the grounds. The grounds are great for a family walk loads of areas to sit down and take in the surrounding. We found a quite area to let the dog run in the woodland. Recommend a visit to let off a bit of steam and take in the views
  • Lovely castle and gardens. Also great views from the tower on the hill. However if you are troubled by a rude individual who looks like an estate employee saying you can't picnic in the car park area, please report him to the ticket office. I am pleased to say we received an apology from the castle manager and have subsequently been reassured it will not happen again.
