I visited and played Castle Stuart Golf Course on probably the best day of the year. The views across the Moray Firth were the only thing that looked better than this fantastic golf course and that's saying something. Must be up there with the best in the UK. The staff were extremely attentive and professional especially in the Pro Shop... More

Charming place with a very warm welcome. Lovely dinner in the castle dining room with bagpipes as a dinner bell. A true Scottish castle with secret passages and its ghost stories! We will definitely return one day.

The hole experience of being at the castle was magical to say the least. Went there a few years ago for a family wedding and as a fellow "Scot" it just made it that little extra special. The whole atmosphere was great and the castle inside is really nice to look at and you can just feel the history that... More

My wife and I first visited this venue for a private tour about 20 years ago, when it had been restored and first opened to the public after falling into decades if decay. The owner himself who was from Canada and had inherited the castle guided the tour and explained the spooky castle history. It is reputed to be haunted... More

We stayed on our honeymoon and it was great! Beautiful and amazing place. Only thing was the two piece bathroom in the bedroom was really cold but would definitely go back again. Caroline was the sweetest hostess ever.

We stayed in the Murray Suite while at Castle Stuart. You could feel the history of the castle once inside; it was like being in another century. Lady Caroline is very gracious :-) The modern touches, attention to detail and the food was superb. The miniature Shetlands at too cute. This was our first stay at a castle ... we... More

My wife and I had our honeymoon at Castle Stuart in 2004 (well before the golf and other general hype) and we have returned there several times since. It never disappoints. Exceptional ambiance, great service, fabulous location! I've visited over 90 countries around the world but Castle Stuart still remains a very special and unique experience. I cannot recommend it...

Castle Stuart is the quintessential castle of one's childhood imagination. We enjoyed 4 nights of our gracious hostess, Caroline Stuart's hospitality, in August, 2013. We chose the Macintosh Suite on the first level, as I harboured concerns about my ability to manage a great number of castle steps; it was the perfect choice for us. We loved our Jacobean style...

With just a bit of imagination, you could believe yourself in another century, while spending time at Castle Stuart. The hidden passages, the careful attention to detail and the cleverly hidden modern touches make this a delightful stay. Add to that friendly staff, a wonderful Scottish breakfast and miniature horses and you have an unforgettable vacation experience.

“All the rooms are great, but for the best experience I recommend the Battlement Suite (aka Maclachlan Suite). You have private and complete access to the top of the tower where you can look down upon your subjects, or sunbath in the nude if you wish! Just amazing!!”
