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.

How could I have missed this gem! What a reminder of the amazing history of our country. Great idea having the quiz for kids, kept ours entertained allowing us to just be awed.
Beautiful castle and gardens. Some lovely walks around the grounds. Good cafe with tasty treats, too.
A pretty interesting castle though the internal self-guided tour is not particularly long. However, the view of the castle and Loch from the folly on the hill behind the castle is truly superb.
Nice place visit, take your time and explore the place. Excellent and knowledgeable staff, would love to come again in better weather to walk the gardens.
Beautiful castle with some very interesting rooms and armoury. Photographs and exhibits of the Duke's life manage to convey that this is still his home. Areas of the castle on view are rather limited and best visited when time and weather allow the beautiful gardens to be fully appreciated.
