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.

  • Although the interior of the castle was closed for the winter it is still well worth a visit to enjoy the grounds and admire the castle, home of Duke & Duchess of Argyll, Clan Campbell. We even manage...  more »
  • The castle was closed when we visited but the grounds were open for walks. We took the signposted trail to the hill with the watch tower on a sunny day. It was worth the hike, the views were amazing. ...  more »
  • Beautiful castle and castle grounds which have been preserved by commitment of a young family, which uses contemporary sponsorship (dowton abbey series) where of course no objection. Many materials have been preserved and tentoonsgesteld. There is a nice shop and a tea room with very tasty snacks. Beautiful attraction, certainly worth a visit.

  • 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!
