Inveraray Castle, Inveraray

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.

  • Loved it! Beautiful! Its great that its still lived in, you can tell its well taken care of. The grounds and gardens are stunning too. Even in the dreary rain 😊
  • Stunning example of a Scottish castle. Plenty of history and historic military weapons can be seen within. The castle is within easy walking of Inveraray town centre, and has a restaurant on site. Well worth a visit
  • Able to have a look around by walk without being charged. £5 for the garden which is slightly overpriced when talking into account the size of it. Well maintained though. Worth the walk from town.
  • A very nice place to visit and the staff was amazingly knowledgeable. The gardens were not remarkable and the deep gravel paths are hard to walk on, but the house is grand. Ask about the piano.
  • Beautiful place to visit both the castle itself, the grounds and the surrounding countryside. Well worth a visit!
